Wish Cancelled

Mutable Realms sends word that Wish, their MMORPG, has been cancelled after a brief period of beta testing. The beta ended last night, and it sounds from the announcement that Mutable Realms will not continue as an entity beyond this point either:
Dear friends of Wish:

Unfortunately we have bad news.

After careful consideration of all the facts and analyzing all the data which we have gathered from the Wish Beta 2.0 test so far, we have decided to cancel the Wish project.

Our Beta test will end this evening at 6pm EST, and at this time our Beta forums will close as well.

We enjoyed working together with our fans very much, and we are very sorry about this development. We wish you the best of luck in the future, and hope that you continue to enjoy online gaming, even with Mutable Realms and Wish not being available anymore.

We also wish the best luck to our competitors, and hope that they will not suffer the same fate as us.

A good crpg should be solo, should be without npcs grouping to form parties and should not be coop or have any multiplayer.

I hope you meant that in jest. Do you truly believe it SHOULDN'T be co-op? Come on! Think about it. The first real (good) CRPGs were D&D world conversions. Pen and Paper D&D is MULTI-player co-op. So the co-op CRPGs of today more closely model PnP DnD than a single player one ever could, just from the mere fact that you are questing with REAL people who make their own decisions, as opposed to you making the decisions for 4 other people in your party.

Don't get me wrong. There were/are some great SP CRPGS...but thats just an outrageous statement to make that a good one SHOULD be SP only.
