NCsoft Cancels Spacetime MMO, Layoffs Result

Austin-based startup MMO developer Spacetime Studios has revealed on its website that its agreement with NCSoft to publish its primary space-based PC MMO project, Blackstar, has been canceled.

The company has revealed the first concrete Blackstar details on its site, but has now confirmed the studio will not be entering production "in the immediate future." As a result, the company says Spacetime was forced to lay off 12 members of its staff.

The official statement announcing this change also stressed that the cancellation discussions were not hostile. "We want to stress that there are no bad feelings with NCSoft," it notes. "There is a tremendous amount of mutual respect between our companies. They have conducted themselves with honor and integrity, and we would work with them again in an instant."

Yeah TnS is right. My guess is that, they probably axed this to concentrate on the upcoming PS3/PSP game. I could be wrong though.
