LotRO going indie!
« on: December 20, 2016, 06:11:08 PM »
In case you've missed this from the official forums, Turbine/WB is selling LotRO and DDO to a independent game studio made up of its existing LotRO and DDO teams. That studio is called Standing Stone Games, and their games will be globally distributed by Daybreak Games (formerly Sony Online Entertainment and the makers of Everquest). There is a FAQ on the forums, but for the most part, I regard this as good news since WB had announced that Turbine would be focused on mobile games from now on. So LotRO can join Everquest in being a classic MMO without any worrying distraction of trying to make the next PokemonGo game. This really makes me excited for the Mordor expansion now.
