Op Ed

Eurogamer.net - Realtime Crisis.
In the longer term, however, I suspect that the impact of RTW's demise will be felt by the UK games business for many years to come. The company's failure is not entirely a shock - it launched an MMO-style game which was hugely expensive to develop, but which received poor reviews, a combination which would be a fatal blow to most game companies. The scale of the failure, and the context in which it has happened, however, will have a major impact on how the industry does business.

MMO developers seem to be the worst for it. They all seem to think that they'll be the next Blizzard and clock up millions of subscribers, when even the best non-wow mmo generally gets a few hundred thousand and a great many fail altogether. There isn't ever likely to be a WoW killer until WoW dies a natural, purely because the majority of the MMO customer base in the west is used to WoW and isn't inclined to move.
