    I swear I read somewhere that one of the companies picking up all the laid off employees were going to try to save this game. Dunno if it was a post on these boards or somewhere else. I hope they do save the game cause I was looking forward to it.

    All of the employess from the substudio called Big Huge Games got picked up by another company(can't think of which atm - maybe Epic?), but the game still is, and most likely will be indefinitely, dead.

    :(

    Yea, it was epic. Unfortunately, Copernicus is never going to see the light of day...

    That said I wonder what Epic is gonna do with the employees. They primarily do shooters (GoW, UT, etc), not sure why they'd need an MMO team...

    Big Huge Games is the team that did nearly all of KoA:R so I am hoping they get them working on some kind of new roleplaying game. The team that was working on the MMO didn't get saved as far as I know.

    38 Studios stills own the proprietary rights to Copernicus. The option to sell I'm sure would be saddled with a condition of retaining the producers and development team, a price that no one will pay

    You all know I'm a huge 38Studios/Copernicus fan boy but the trailer was kinda "meh" to me. Maybe I just feel jaded still over the whole fiasco. I still wish them the best and hope they get something worked out but my dream of playing this game died weeks ago. On to other (and hopefully better) things...

    How is Copernicus 'retired' if it never worked?

    A quick glance at the author makes it a bit easier to understand
