GameTap Closes Myst Online: Uru Live
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 5 comments

In a recent post on the Myst Online website, GameTap's Ricardo Sanchez announced that Myst Online: Uru Live will be closed down. Although the servers will eventually be shut down permanently, Myst Online will be available to both existing players and new visitors for 60 days. The official website will remain active for fans to continue to "share their passion for this important game franchise."

The decision was a very difficult one and was made for business reasons rather than due to any issues regarding the design and vision of the amazing world that Cyan Worlds and Rand Miller have brought to us. Despite the great Myst Online experience coming to a close, Cyan is still a very valued partner of GameTap, we are on excellent terms, and we look forward to continuing our relationship in the future.

Many of you have made good friends while playing Myst Online, so here is the bittersweet part. Although Myst Online: Uru Live will be completely shut down in the near future, the game servers will remain live for the next 60 days. During that time, both newcomers and existing players can continue to experience the amazing world of Myst Online, explore the game's many Ages, and interact with other players in the game and on the MystOnline.com website and forums. After 60 days, the title will be removed from the GameTap service, though MystOnline.com will remain live and active for fans to continue to share their passion for this important game franchise.
