The ArcheAge forum has a new letter posted from XLGames' Jake Song. In it, he mentions how shocked he was by the news that Trion had been sold to Gamigo but that he and the team will work with the new owners to "stabilize the game service & launch the 5.0 Update as quickly as possible".
The letter in its entirety:
Hello all, I was shocked by the news about Trion Worlds. I am sure you guys are, too. It is a pity how things unfolded so suddenly. We are talking to Gamigo. My understanding is that the paperwork is almost done and I believe the ArcheAge team will provide you with an announcement with the new release date for 5.0 very soon. We will do our best to stabilize the game service and launch the 5.0 Update as quickly as possible. I am glad you enjoy playing ArcheAge. I hope you know that your in-game entertainment is the most important to me. As time passed, the core element of fun in the game has diminished and even though some players have moved on, I am trying my best to revitalize ArcheAge. We have been making small and big changes to the game more frequently, and with this momentum I have faith that by sometime next year we will fundamentally restore ArcheAge to the way I pictured it in the past. Thanks, Jake Song
