...about the MMO cancellation: http://www.theguardian.com/technology/2014/jun/05/world-of-darkness-the-inside-story-mmo-ccp-white-wolf

I can't help to being reminded of the reasons why Bloodlines was released rather unfinished and Troika had to close: Bad management by Gabe Newell, who only was interested in Steam at the time, forced the HL2 people to reboot the game again and again and Troika had to follow that with Bloodlines too until they decided to keep an outdated Source engine. Of course it was worse with the WoD MMO with CCP using WoD people for EVE expansions, which many of us probably suspected.

Its not very surprising, if you visited thier Glass Door revies (: http://www.glassdoor.com/Reviews/CCP-Reviews-E159347.htm ) that surfaced in the last couple of months.

Rick Gentle:
"One manager couldn't answer questions on gameplay or focus. I remember him standing over the shoulder of a programmer putting his finger to his lips and saying 'No - make it more... psssshhhh’"

I'd say that's exactly how it turned out.

Darkfury:
indeed interesting article. I just wonder why after all , having some work already done no one consider to turn
Wod MMo into single player sandbox game or simply put Bloodlines 2.
Shame and big disappointment that all work and time has been somehow wasted.   

Looks like whole game industry have some tough times.
