Over the past 8 years it seems that every franchise possibly has had a MMO variant. From Dungeons and Dragons to Lord Of the Rings to even Hello Kitty it seemed as though nothing was safe from being turned into an MMO. Despite the Darth Vader like screams of “NO”, the mmo bloat continued on and on toward an inevitable breaking point. And with THQ’s announcement that Warhammer 40k: Dark Millennium was being downscaled into a single player game with online multiplayer I think it’s quickly becoming clear to everyone.
The MMO gold rush is over.
