Another one bites the dust. GBE Games just announced that the free MMORPG The Aurora World is about to shut down as of November 24th, 2014. The publisher said the following on the official website:
“The game showed a lot of promise during its inception, and we have had a lot of fun pushing the game to its peak. But overtime it has been unable to maintain a large enough audience to create a reasonable and enjoyable environment for all players. The Aurora World is a great game, we believe we have not drawn its potential to what it is deserved, it is a tough decision made for us to shut down the game.
For most that have continued their support of the game (especially the die-hards), it’s truly upsetting to inform you all of this closure. We sincerely apologize to our amazing community that we were unable to provide the enjoyment that you all deserve. GBE Games’ is extremely proud and thankful to have amassed such a following and fortunate enough to have worked together with a few as well.”
We made a first look on The Aurora World last year, when it was the new kid on the block, and it’s safe to say that it left us a bit unimpressed, to say the least. If you want to refresh your memory, watch the video below.
