Gods & Heroes: Rome Rising – Lost Lore

Gods & Heroes Preorder Box CoverJust over a week ago, Perpetual Entertainment announced they would be putting their MMORPG “Gods & Heroes: Rome Rising” on “indefinite hold”. In other words, the game is shelved and for all practical purposes canceled.

So what’s the big deal? Game are canceled all the time.

What makes this one unusual is “Gods & Heroes: Rome Rising”, was in Closed Beta. That’s right, Beta. So, for all practical purposes, done. And this is an MMORPG, so one can only imagine the massive amount of work that had gone into it.

MMORPG.com posted an interview with one of the writers. It’s worth a read.

“Perpetual” indeed. Perhaps the name jinxed them.
