Trion Worlds has confirmed today that development for End of Nations is “on hold”, while the company focuses on its other projects.
“As we informed EON’s community last fall, internal development on End of Nations was put on hold in late 2013 while we evaluated potential paths forward for the title,” a statement Trion issued to Polygon reads. “We’re currently focusing the company’s energy and creativity on Rift, Defiance, Trove, ArcheAge and some new projects that we will be revealing soon.”
End of Nations was originally being developed by Petroglyph, and planned to release its final beta in October 2012. Publisher Trion postponed the beta to fix “several key areas” of the game that required improvement. Trion then announced that End of Nations development shifted to Trion Worlds in December 2012 following reports indicating layoffs at Petroglyph.
