'Marvel Universe Online' MMO Dead?


Posted November 14, 2007 - By Stephen Johnson

Rumor on the interweb is that the previously announced but not-yet-released Marvel MMO has hit some serious problems. The game was a collaboration between Marvel, Microsoft and Cryptic Studios

According to 1up.com, the game "has hit serious, potentially stalling, development troubles."

Last week, NCSoft announced it had acquired the City of Heroes IP from Cryptic Studios. During and following the announcement, no comment was made about the status of Marvel Universe Online. Microsoft was tight-lipped about the status of the game:

"We have nothing new to share about Marvel Universe Online," said a Microsoft spokesperson. Pressed further about whether the changes within Cryptic had affected the game, Microsoft was no more forthcoming. "Cryptic's recent sale of the City of Heroes IP to NCSoft has no bearing on the development of "Marvel Universe Online," continued the spokesperson.

Cryptic President and co-founder Michael Lewis also offered no comment when asked about the status of the game. No one involved saying even, "Be patient! It's coming!" it starts to look like it's not coming.
