We already suspected it – the official site is offline for a few days – but Trion Worlds just confirmed that the free-to-play RTS turned MOBA End of Nations is on hold. Trion told Polygon the following:
“As we informed EON’s community last fall, internal development on End of Nations was put on hold in late 2013 while we evaluated potential paths forward for the title. We’re currently focusing the company’s energy and creativity on Rift, Defiance, Trove, ArcheAge and some new projects that we will be revealing soon.”
So Trion Worlds is putting End of Nations on hold to work on its other MMORPGs, including the highly anticipated Western version of Archeage and the curious and cubic Trove.
End of Nations had a very troubled development, with Petroglyph working on the game until Trion Worlds overtook development in December 2012 and decided to turn End of Nations into a MOBA. While “on hold” could mean just that – after all, the studio invested a lot of time and money into the game and still has all the assets – we fear that we won’t be seeing End of Nations anytime soon, or at least in its current format.
