Why Aren't There More MMORTS Games?

To understand why there aren’t many MMORTS games today, we have to take a look at the genre’s long history. The Real Time Strategy genre has been around ever since graphical interfaces were developed for computers. It seemed nearly every company in the 80’s and 90’s had at least one real-time strategy game in their repertoire. Many of these games were successful, but the genre really kicked off when Bullfrog released Populous in 1989, a game that is still referenced even today. From there we bounced around games like Dune, Command and Conquer, Total Annihilation and even a little game called Warcraft. (Industry, PC)
