Thats why this genre has no history and therefore cannot evolve. MMOs are nothing more than temporary services to (hopefully) make money. They only exist in the present, they are only allowed exist if they can make money.
Sure, offline games are made to make money too, but they dont simply vanish from existence after they reached their commercial shelf life.
