Turbine is being flooded with questions from a thrilled Asheron's Call 2 player base and media outlets due to yesterday's announcement that the game would be reopening. We have an official statement from the good folks at Turbine that we'd like to share.
We have been receiving a lot of questions about why we decided to open a server and bring back Asheron’s Call 2. Frankly, we were as surprised as all of you. This guy with a big white beard and fuzzy red jacket showed up at the office yesterday. St. Nick? Asheron? Hard to tell. Whoever he was, he turned on a stack of servers and suddenly AC2 was live. ;-)
In all seriousness, we are really excited to be able to open the doors to Asheron’s Call 2 to our loyal players again. The AC community has been going strong for a little over 13 years now, and the call to bring AC2 back to life has never really faded. Especially for the Asheron’s Call dev team, they love the world as much as any of our players. After a lot of hard work, they we able to get AC2 to work with our current infrastructure and we love that they’ve been able to bring it back. So here it is. In beta, at least. We hope you enjoy it!
