ACTU

D'Empire en pire

Arnaud par Arnaud,  email  @drsynack
 
Artifact Entertainment, connu pour avoir développé Horizons: Empire of Istaria est en dépôt de bilan. Rien de bien étonnant quand on voit la qualité plus que médiocre de ce MMORPG qui pourtant lorsqu'il avait été annoncé il y a 4 ans laissait présager le mieux - la possibilité de jouer un Dragon, une lore très riche, une intéraction totale entre le ciel, le sol et les souterrains.

Dans la réalité, le titre est sorti extrêmement buggé, était fastidieux et bien qu'il avait des avantages, ce n'était pas assez pour se démarquer dans la jungle impitoyable des MMO.

Artifact s'est donc fait racheter par la société Tulga Games, inconnue au bataillon. On notera comment leur site sent bon la précipitation. La transaction doit encore être autorisé par un tribunal étant donné le statut de mise en faillite d'Artifact.
