After a Long Silence, DRAGO Speaks of Woes & a Better Future

After a Long Silence, DRAGO Speaks of Woes & a Better Future - MMORPG.com

Otherland launched into Steam Early Access in September 2016. DRAGO had been in charge of bringing the game back after the original developers' studio (RealU) closed. DRAGO devs were allowed to communicate with fans and to provide updates. However, after the release of Otherland on Steam, a new publisher was brought in by the game's backers, a group that had been with the game from the very beginning. The publisher insisted that it would handle all communication, hence the start of issues.

Shortly after the soft launch of Otherland as a free-to-play game in September 2016, the publisher decided to hold back on most releases and information in preparation for a major relaunch planned for June this year.

The game not being relaunched as planned has seen the investors sit down with the publisher to voice their concerns and to keep a long story short, it has been decided that the investors will continue Otherland on their own and here is where things are becoming really interesting.

From this point forward, DRAGO has been given full creative control over the game and has acquired a minority stake in the game itself. The team will take over community support, community management and will be working with players to drive the game forward based on suggestions and feedback.

You can read the entire letter on the Otherland Facebook page.
