Not the best way for Silent Typhoon Studio to celebrate the new year – Legend of Silkroad is shutting down today, publisher JC Planet has announced. The announcement mentions difficulties in development for this decision, but no specific details were announced. Forums and website will also be closed today, the announcement dating from December 24 reads.
Legend of Silkroad is a low profile MMORPG that just entered open beta on May 20, 2014 and looked a bit rough around the edges. This outcome isn’t completely surprising considering the current oversaturation of the free-to-play market. Having many games to choose from is a good thing, but bad games will eventually be forgotten over time.
