The successor for Runescape, arguably the most successful browser MMO ever, is being placed on hiatus. Stellar Dawn is being shelved in order to allow the company to focus on its licensed project, a Transformers MMO as well as maintaining Runescape. The irony is that Stellar Dawn was the result of another shelved project called MechScape.
“Jagex has always been committed to developing the highest quality games and services. This is not a decision we have taken lightly; the Stellar Dawn team has achieved a great deal developing the game and should rightly be proud of their achievements so far.”
“Having paused all Stellar Dawn development, we have been able to reallocate all but 12 members of the team to our other development studios,” said Jagex CEO Mark Gerhard.
