Recently, MMORPG.com Managing Editor Jon Wood had the opportunity to ask a few questions to the team at CCR, the company behind RF Online.
For those who might not be aware, when RF Online was first released, Codemasters was the publisher. Since then, CCR has parted ways with Codemasters and will pubish the game on their own. The company has only just ended its closed beta.
It is quite unusual that an MMO begins with one publisher, is then shut down and re-opened with a new publisher. Can you tell us how this came to happen with RF Online?
They told us that they were apologised for having to take their service offline between when the Codemasters service ended and now and that while it may be much more commonplace for an MMO to go from start to finish with one single publisher, that this isn’t the only way that things can be done.
They wanted to be clear that the closure wasn’t something that they were pleased with either, but that they hope that when the game is re-launched, their game will be better than ever.
“We, CCR,” they said, “will do our best fr RF Online Global Service, and we guarantee no more service suspension will be generated later”.
