It is with a sad heart that we have to announce that MMO Magic, Inc. has decided to close down current production on Citadel of Sorcery.

The last two years have been hard, with the attempted upgrade of the entire engine and trying to get the planet generating technology to all work together. Bugs have plagued progress and due to that, we have not gotten a single new working build in over a year. After nearly fourteen years in development, all of it without major funding, MMO Magic, Inc. is just not financially able to continue working on CoS.

So, what is the future for this project? Well, Citadel of Sorcery relied on technology from another company, Atlantis3D, Inc. Though they have not been able to get the engine to where it needs to be for CoS, they have made some really amazing elements and progress. They plan to continue working on the Trident3D game engine technology. Should they manage to get it running to a sufficient level for CoS, there is always the possibility of us restarting development on this MMORPG.

To everyone who donated toward CoS, we really did give it our best shot. Obviously, these were donations, not purchases, so you were taking the same risks that the team did when they donated their time and money to make the game. No pay checks were ever given out, all donations went to the making of the game and nothing else.

Our thanks to those that believed in the game and tried to help, both the Patrons who donated and to the over one hundred Level Designers, Artists, Producers, Writers, Programmers, Composers and Sound Artists who donated their time and money to work on this game, without ever being paid.
You made some amazing progress and worked hard to make this dream come true. Unfortunately, there just weren’t enough believers to get sufficient funding to push this to completion.

Any of MMO Magic's past Patrons who still wish to follow development of the Trident3D engine (which will be needed if we should decide to restart work on CoS in the future) can follow progress on the technology by joining our Atlantis3D, Flock chat server. Just send Jatar a PM asking for a login (I'll need a valid email address to send you an invite). Patrons only, please.

(And Patron who is currently already on the MMO Magic, Inc. Hipchat server can get a link to join the A3D Flock server on Hipchat).
