Metaplace : Shutting Down January 1st

Posted Dec 23, 2009 by Michael Bitton

Come January 1st, 2010, Metaplace, the brain-child of renowned game designer Raph Koster, will be shut down. There is no conspiracy to this story, it is a simple fact that the product (Metaplace) hasn't become profitable enough to remain viable.

The announcement, which was made on the official Metaplace forums, explains further:

Unfortunately, over the last few months it has become apparent that Metaplace as a consumer UGC service is not gaining enough traction to be a viable product, requiring a strategic shift for our company.

 

We’re sorry to announce today that Metaplace.com will be closing to the public at 11:59pm on January 1st, 2010.

While a large number of the studio's staff has been laid off due to this development, the remaining team will commence work on a new project in the near future.
