Massively is reporting that Frogster Asia (of Frogster Interactive) has announced plans to shut down the development studio working on The Chronicles of Spellborn as the result of an impasse between publisher Frogster and their dutch licensor Spellborn NV.
Spellborn has had a tumultuous history. The game's developer shut down, and players were hit with a big surprise when the game switched over from a "Freemium" subscription model to a full on Free to Play game only months after its launch. According to the Massively report, the game is still plagued with many internal issues such as corrupted patches, a broken downloader, and even a bug that forces players to change their password each time they login.
While it sounds like The Chronicles of Spellborn will not be moving forward in Asia, we're still unsure of what Acclaim plans to do with the game here in the US and you can be sure we'll be following this story to find out!
