German studio SilentFuture resurrecting Earthrise.

So it seems they have a been bought out and have a new dev team and are planning on a total overhaul.

Considering I already bought the game and it went down quicker than Paris Hilton, I'd love to see it ressurected and possibly developed to a point where it became a quality game.

It had potential, as so many games these days do, but the performance issues and lack of content made the execution of the game as a whole feel severely lacking - because it was lacking in every possible way.

Masthead was fairly dishonest, hopefully this new studio doesn't follow in the footsteps of the predecessor.

EDIT: The new Earthrise page, despite numerous typos, actually leads me to believe this new studio might have a solid grasp on what needs to be done.

They specifically mention performance improvements as a top priority right off the bat, rightfully so, and will be wiping old characters as well so everyone starts on even footing. After the amount of exploiters that took advantage in the game early on that is great to see.

Silent Future might just have a shot at reviving the game...

.... because the first time it was not a big enough failure? The game was a complete train wreck at all levels before...

When has a game ever been successfully relaunched and not been just as bad?

Has any game ever been "better" after coming out of the boneyard?

The few examples I know of (and most F2P conversions for that matter) do not inspire confidence....

Bad games go under for a reason.

oi. this... is not going to end well. again. furthermore, i, for one, refuse to play any game that has that many spelling and grammatical errors in such a small space on its official site.

No man controls my destiny... especially not one who attacks downwind and stinks of garlic.

Hah I'd like to see this again.  If they cleaned up the engine so it didnt' run like crap on 90% of pc's, added more depth to the game somehow, fixed the pvp...maybe it could be ok.  Not holding my breath though, wish them luck though, they will need it!

This has to be the biggest joke this year I guess :p

No seriously. They shouldn't work with what's left of the game and simply start from scratch if anything. Before they're going to beat this dead horse they need to excavate it first and there isn't really much left.

MMORPGs are no longer about the mass multi-user anymore *sadly*

I hope they got what it takes to make it a good game. It's sad to see a game go down like that, especially in the Sci-Fi genre.

that wont do anything, since the fact that you bought it in the past doesnt matter anymore. all old accounts are removed you are treated as a new customer.
