Shadowbane Developer To Close Doors
7:41 AM | Cord Kruse | 5 comments

Several websites are reporting that Wolfpack Studios, developer of the MMORPG Shadowbane, has been closed down by parent company Ubisoft. On his blog Wolfpack Community Manager Shane Dahlberg confirmed the reports, saying Ubisoft intends to refocus its efforts on the console market. There is no word yet on the fate of Shadowbane.

Yes, the rumor is true: I am looking for a new job. No, I did not get fired. Nor am I the only one looking for a job. We were recently informed that as of mid-May 2006, the doors of Wolfpack Studios will be closing. Ubisoft, our parent company, will be refocusing their efforts on the console market with the new fiscal year, what with the new systems coming to market such as the X-box 360, PS3, and the Nintendo GO! (or so the rumors call it lately). This is not an unheard of practice; many game publishing companies tend to put a majority of their efforts into development of games for new systems. It is best to strike when the iron is hot, as the saying goes.

What does this mean for Shadowbane? Truth be told, I really don't know. I wish I did because I don't only work on the game, I play it too. Once I do know something and can officially state as much, I'll let you all know.
