The Rift forum has been updated with a brief letter from the new Gamigo Rift development team. Without many details, the community is reassured that there is "work being done behind the scenes to build a strong foundation for the future". The team is also looking for "specific feedback on the kinds of quality of life changes" players would like to see.
We appreciate your patience as we take some time to solidify plans moving forward. There are a ton of moving parts involved in the transition from where we were to where we want to go, and it’s going to take us a bit of time to navigate all of the changes required to keep Telara and its denizens happy with the world we’ve called home for so long. With our smaller team we’re still working out the details on what future content updates will look like. While plans are being made for the future, we’re going to be focusing the team on implementing Quality of Life improvements for RIFT in the short term.
