That Promising Vampire MMO ‘World Of Darkness’ Is No More

Eight years after its initial reveal, developer CCP Games has confirmed their long in-development horror fantasy MMO World of Darkness has officially been canned. Revealed in 2006, the game was to be an MMO set in the Vampire: The Masquerade universe. Much of the team behind it, including 56 employees at CCP Atlanta, will be laid off.

As for the reasoning behind the game’s cancellation, a statement from CCP CEO Hilmar Veigar Petursson says “To our current and former employees and fans of World of Darkness, I am truly sorry that we could not deliver the experience that we aspired to make. We dreamed of a game that would transport you completely into the sweeping fantasy of World of Darkness, but had to admit that our efforts were falling regretfully short. One day I hope we will make it up to you.”

Below you’ll find one of the few trailers we’ve seen of the promising title.

The video games industry is no stranger to news like this. It’s always unfortunate when a game is cancelled, and it’s even more sad when that game has as much promise as World of Darkness did.

We wish the 56 former CCP employees the best of luck.

    Dammit! I was looking forward to this taking off.

    The VtM universe is awesome for games. Just look at Bloodlines. It was bugged to hell and missing a heap of content and yet it’s easily one of the best games ever made.

    It’s like there’s a curse involved.
