Repopulation Rework; Fragmented Announced

A post on The Repopulation website says it outlines the future of this MMORPG, but it actually focuses on the announcement of a new game called Fragmented, while explaining that The Repopulation remains in offline for now, referring back to this post explaining why the alpha servers for the MMORPG were closed (thanks J.C.). Now they say that their long term solution is to port the game to the Unreal Engine, and in the meantime, the are planning a spin-off game called Fragmented, saying: "We didn’t want Repopulation fans to be sitting and waiting idly though while we frantically try to get the game ported to Unreal Engine." This is set to enter early access soon, and will be given for free to all who have purchased The Repopulation. Here's the Fragmented website, here's a trailer, and here's a bit:
We didn’t want Repopulation fans to be sitting and waiting idly though while we frantically try to get the game ported to Unreal Engine. Starting in February we will begin testing a spin off set in the Repopulation universe which we have titled: Fragmented. This product is a sci fi survival game which is similar to a more action oriented, and much trimmed down version of The Repopulation. This allowed us to not only reuse many of the same assets which we already had in place, but also makes up the reusable foundations of what will become the Unreal Engine based version of The Repopulation. We will be giving away this product for free to all owners of The Repopulation. We are happy to provide a quick teaser video of some early work on the title and look forward to providing more footage and screenshots soon.

Good luck moving it to a new engine with the small staff they have. They have effectively killed the game.

If you actually read the article they have effectively resurrected the game. You do realize everything in the video was done from scratch in 2 and a half months? You realize they were using a dead engine stuck in a horrible agreement with HeroEngine? It was either kill the game or do what they did.
Agreed if anything this move saved the game. I think with the new engine they will end up selling more copies than they would of with the Hero engine.

Yup, loved the game, hated the clunky engine, glad to see that they are going back to the drawing board a little, I can wait.
