On Rune II Support

Venture Beat has a response from Ragnarok Game LLC to today's announcement that Rune II developer Human Head Studios is closed. This refers to Ragnarok as the publisher of Rune II, even though the Epic Games Store lists the publisher as Human Head. Ragnarok says the closure was unexpected, which is weird, since this post on Steam that seems to be from Human Head says, "Ragnarok Game, LLC is the business entity we created with our financial partner ESDF to publish Rune." In any event, they say they still plan on supporting the game, though it may take some time to get things in order:
“Yesterday, we successfully launched Rune II onto the Epic Games Store and the game’s demand has exceeded our expectations,” the Ragnarok team said in a statement. “First and foremost: We love this game, and we will continue to support Rune II.”

“Today, developer Human Head Studios announced that it closed its doors and will be starting a new studio,” reads the Ragnarok statement. “This is shocking news to us, as there are several entities working on Rune II — we found out about this news when you did.”

“Human Head had a longstanding agreement with Rune II’s publisher, Ragnarok Game, LLC, to provide ongoing support for the game,” reads the Ragnarok statement. “We are working quickly to resolve any current technical issues while we build the team that will execute the exciting planned future of Rune II’s post-launch content strategy.”

“Our plan remains to continue working on Rune II and launch onto other PC platforms in 2020,” reads the statement. “We’re excited to show you the future of Rune II content.”
