Digital Extremes announces
they "have decided to hit the pause button on
development" of The Amazing Eternals
, a deck-building game that had
already reached the closed beta phase (thanks
). Here's the explanation:
After many discussions internally
on the state of The Amazing Eternals, we have decided to hit the pause button on
development at this time. This decision didn’t come lightly. We worked hard to
make a game that we are proud to say was shaping up to have great potential.
However, we took an honest look at the current gaming landscape and how the game
was performing in Closed Beta. Unfortunately, the game wasn’t attracting players
fast enough to support a viable matchmaking player base with the current game
design direction, which is the lifeblood of this type of game. So, with heavy
hearts, we’re taking a step back to reevaluate the design and may revisit our
intrepid heroes in the future.
For those players who believed in what we were making and invested their
hard-earned cash into the Founders Program, we are humbled by and grateful for
your dedication and support. Refunds will be issued over a 72-hour period
beginning today, October 26, 2017 and may take up to 3 to 5 business days to
process. During this period, the game servers will remain live until 11:59pm ET,
November 2, 2017.
The official forums and Discord will remain live indefinitely for players who
want to stay in contact with each other, and the entire development team will
remain with Digital Extremes and transition to Warframe development, so if
you’re a Warframe player, you may still see us around.
This was a hard decision to make, and we can’t thank you enough for your
incredible support throughout development. The Amazing Eternals will live on
through all of you who were there to make it happen.
We do not have any additional plans to discuss at this time, but feel free to
post any questions or concerns here, and we’ll try to answer them.
