AC2 is closing December 30, 2005. ::::16:: There was a post on the forums and is on the official page.

http://ac2.turbine.com/index.php?page_id=384



Dear AC2 subscribers,

In spite of our hard work and the launch of Legions, AC2 has reached the point where it no longer makes sense to continue the service. We will be officially closing the Asheron's Call 2 service on 12/30/05. Until then, we plan to run live events, but we will not be adding any content or features.

We deeply appreciate the many dedicated fans of AC2 who have stood by us over the years. You have our sincerest gratitude.

Best regards,

Jeffrey Anderson
CEO, Turbine

It seems like such a waste to me, after all the work they put into it ::::30:: The monthly updates, and an expansion. I guess it will bring a few people back to AC1 ::::21::

A casualty vampire then. Saddest form of life in the known universe. Sad that AC2 is dead, I tried the trial and played for 2 straight weeks and I liked it a lot, but the gf didn't think the girls were hot enough. rofl women are insane, you didn't hear that from me. Well what can ya do, bye AC2, I won't forget you.

Glad I didn't sink to much time into this one.

You got to wonder what's in store for games like Saga of Ryzom and Horizons....

That's kind of a weird move to release an expansion pack and then can it.

I can't believe (or better I don't want to believe ::::16:: ) 2 and a half years of Turbine's development is going to waste. I know this isn't the first MMORPG to close like E&B and MCO. But they weren't open as long as AC2 and had no where near the amount of content that was added to AC2 over the years.

Also to a lesser extent I mind the amount of time some people dedicated to AC2 is going to vanish. The same thing stands true in this case as with E&B and MCO, people have spent more time playing AC2. I know it's going to happen some day with all MMORPG's but I always hoped it would be when 0 people played.

If I had it my way I would stop all updates and remove all staff from AC2. Make one small server and make the game free. There could be a login client with a queue for players to login, since no doubt AC2 would be the best free MMORPG and the server would probably fill up fast. Maybe they could put some ads on the client or even at the bottom of the screen in game to generate a little revenue to cover the servers. It would bring people to discover Turbine and their games. Heck, if people liked playing AC2, they could imagine how good Turbines pay to play games must be ::::28::

Thats actually not a bad idea. However, I think Turbine just wants to move on right now.

I find it odd that the sequel is going to be biting it before the original, but everyone thats every played both games knows why.

I'm a little sad, but the seasons change (as they do in Asheron's Call) and games come and go. My only wish is that, in the future, Turbine makes a great next-generation fantasy sci fi MMORPG that has original ideas and story like the Asheron's Call world had. Some thing new and exciting we've never seen before. I think Turbine can do it...and I hope they will.

To be fair, anyone keeping an eye on the world of MMORPG's knew this had to happer sooner or later. From day one, AC2 was heavily underpopulated, something the regular updates and the expansions couldn't seem to remedy. I can imagine a lot of players being ticked off, but from the company's point of view I'm pretty sure it didn't make sense to invest more time and money into the game. I played AC for a long time and love it, but I have to admit I too thought the sequel to be rather bland and not very engaging, even though Turbine did their best.

Agreed, ryzom is going from strength to strength atm, the game is on a high after the latest news involving outposts and ryzom ring.  They even gave the players a month free play

It is sad.  I loved this game.  To me it was pretty fast paced and the gameworld was absolutely beautiful.  Going to be hard to find another.  Not that I want too.

Made a lot of friends.  Most of the community was great cept for the few token tards.  Anyway, good luck to all that were playing this, and have fun.

This is sad news. I haven't played it in quite a while, but I really enjoyed my time while I was there. I enjoyed Earth & Beyond too, and that went belly up. And I was really excited for Ultima X: Online and that was toasted before it even came out. Man, I'm just cursed or something.

If you want a game that won't shut down until the developers die of old age...

http://www.eve-online.com

Recent dev quote "we have at least 7 years of updates to go with this game until we even start thinking about an EVE 2"

The whole company exists to produce one product and one product only. 64,000 subscribers and rising:

http://www.mmogchart.com/Chart3_files/Subscriptions_12180_image001.gif

It's sci-fi not fantasy, but it's the gameplay that counts in the long-term anyway, and from what I've seen of AC2 it might appeal to many of those who like AC2.

Very sorry that it's shutting down, this is one thing I'll never have to worry about with Eve I think.

After watching them alienate most of the AC1 fanbase when they released this game, I can't say that I am sad to see it go.

Nope, I don't know anything, so I cannot enlighten you.  I've never played the game, but I will when some essential improvements are made.  I wonder how many subscribers SOR has.  It did appear however that AC2 had more subscribers than Horizions.  I dunno, I would suppose it all comes down to developer commitment. 

There are a lot of very unique games coming out over the next year.  I beleive almost all SOR subscribers will try at least one of them.  Can we guarantee SOR will be around 1 year from now?

Well i always thought AC2 was one of the most under rated mmorpg in history.It certainly deserved way more then the 10k or so subs it had.

But yes AC2 was probably making a loss for way over 2 years.

Now it is possible that turbine having 2 big licences to hold on to and produce ie lord of the rings and dugeons and dragons had to conserve as much money as possible to see this games thru as they are potentially very big winners.

Turbine knows name>game play.And lets face it DDO and LOTRO have to be a really terrible mess not to break a descent number of sales.

It always amazed me how turbine who to be honest had online one successful product -AC1(which at its best times never passed the 120k mark) got this 2 licences oer say EA or SoE with more successful games.

However while they might save money by closing AC2 i am not sure it does good for their reputation .

It is sad to see AC2 die and will probably re activate my account for the last day just to see hello and final goodbye to one of the greatest,most mature and friendly guild members i ever played with(even though last i chatted with them via email only 7 were left).And maybe an end of world event who knows
