Tabula Rasa Lays Down Arms in 2009

Tabula Rasa is preparing to surrender Spring 2009. NCsoft has announced that it will be shutting down live servers February 28th. The game will go free to play January 10th, however it appears that gamers will still have to pay December’s dues.

Players can look forward to special in-game events as sort of a last hurrah. The parting Message from The Tabula Rasa Team follows the break. I can’t say I didn’t see this one coming.

To the Tabula Rasa Community,

Last November we launched what we hoped would be a ground breaking sci-fi MMO. In many ways, we think we’ve achieved that goal. Tabula Rasa has some unique features that make it fun and very different from every other MMO out there. Unfortunately, the fact is that the game hasn’t performed as expected. The development team has worked hard to improve the game since launch, but the game never achieved the player population we hoped for.

So it is with regret that we must announce that Tabula Rasa will end live service on February 28, 2009.

Before we end the service, we’ll make Tabula Rasa servers free to play starting on January 10, 2009.

We can assure you that through the next couple of months we’ll be doing some really fun things in Tabula Rasa, and we plan to make staying on a little longer worth your while. For more details about what we are doing for Tabula Rasa players, please click here.

Stay tuned for more information. We thank you for your loyal support of the game and encourage you to take us up on the benefits we’re offering Tabula Rasa players.

Free to play? I’m all over it.

Exactly. That game is fun and I’ll be playing the tits out of it, at least until the end of Feb.

Awesome, not much time to play which sucks. I never played the game so its too late for me now since they are closing down the servers. Someone might have a private server up or something I dunno. :roll:
