Well that's too damned bad. It has been cancelled due to 'technical difficulties'. Technical Issues usually boils down to "We'd like to finish the game but technically we'd have to pay you, and that will create difficulties as we technically have no money". D'oh!
Codemasters has taken the decision to cancel further development of Dragon Empires, the company’s massively multiplayer online role playing project.
Dragon Empires received incredible support from its online community and won acclaim from PC and online media while in development. However, technical issues have resulted in the project’s discontinuation.
Many of the game’s development team, including programmers and artists, are being transferred to Codemasters’ internal development studios to work on current and future titles.
The decision to close Dragon Empires’ development does not impact on Codemasters’ long-term ambitions in the massively multiplayer online gaming market and the company remains very active in evaluating future opportunities.
The Dragon Empires website and its popular community forums will remain live at www.codemasters.com/dragonempires
for the immediate future.
