CCP Evaluating ‘World of Darkness IP’ After Game Cancelation

CCP Games tells CVG that it is reviewing the World of Darkness IP after it announced yesterday that it had canceled the MMO based on it and laid off a large number of employees at its Atlanta studio who had been working on the game for over seven years.

White Wolf and CCP Games merged in 2006, prior to CCP beginning work on the MMO.

"We believe that the World of Darkness IP is very valuable and will be reviewing the status of it in the coming weeks and months, but we have no specific plans under consideration at this time," a CCP spokesperson told CVG.

CCP and White Wolf publish pen-and-paper games like Vampire: The Requiem and Werewolf: The Forsaken, both of which are part of the greater World of Darkness role-playing system and universe.

"In addition, our licensing relationship with companies like Onyx Path Publishing continues without change," the spokesperson said. CCP chief executive Hilmar Pétursson said canceling the World of Darkness project was "one of the hardest I've ever had to make."

"We dreamed of a game that would transport you completely into the sweeping fantasy of World of Darkness, but had to admit that our efforts were falling regretfully short. One day I hope we will make it up to you."
