I’m really shocked by the news that just hit Twitter. Confirmed on the official forums:
It is with a heavy heart that I have to say goodbye, or at least goodbye for now. We simply cannot deliver the game you deserve with the resources we have. We never quit trying, even when hope faded, because you – our community – kept us inspired.
There is a market for a game like this one. Thank you for proving it. I hope to see you again.
This forum is being switched to read-only, effective immediately. I have permission to keep the Facebook page open long enough for goodbyes, and I will hang out there (as a volunteer, not an employee) for a few days.
I am so sorry, y’all. I’ve been intentionally quiet, but I was hoping to get loud again. I will miss you all, and I know we’ll meet again.
I am extremely sad to read this news today. On the heels of such an awesome experience with Guild Wars 2′s three faction PvP… losing an upcoming game that was going to create an even more sandbox and all-encompassing “RvR” experience than what we’ve had in years is extremely disappointing.
They had a broadcast just 10 days ago showing some screenshots and promising info about the game. Dominus as a whole looked very promising. A lot of people bonded together to create a close-knit community to support Pitch Black Games. As Sanya said, there is a market for a game like Dominus. This was a solid idea they had, and one I fully support. The reason I’m posting this is because of how much I care about promoting gameplay like PBG was trying to develop.
I hope that Pitch Black Games will consider a Kickstarter or continue to search for funding in order to make Dominus a reality.
Maybe the only good news in all of this is that I have a Prime: Battle for Dominus t-shirt that I thought would be a collector’s item after they changed the name of the game to simply ‘Dominus’. Now it will be framed and displayed on my wall as a relic.
Show your support for them.
