Do any of you remember Anarchy Online?  Do you remember playing it?  Do you also remember them mentioning an upgrade to their engine?  Well something happened not to long ago.

On Sept 9, game director of Anarchy Online Fia Tjernberg has revealed some disheartening news for AO fans. They said that have delayed the development of the new engine for the AO and forcing to lay off half of it's staff. Fia said that the delay was a result of the "poor reception of it's newly released mmo secret world."

" Tjernberg expressed sorrow due to the developments, saying, “It is with sadness that I write to you this month, as many good developers, and dear friends will be leaving this fall. A sad time for otherwise very happy family.”  They will be missed.   Fia also said that "While certain features have been pushed back, the engine upgrade is still a priority, Tjernberg explained, “Our Dreamworld engine upgrade is still one of our top priorities. We believe this is an important step in evolving AO and building for the future, and as this work is done in parallel to the rest of our commitments, we do not have to delay any other content because of this!”

Well that sucks I was looking forward to the new upgrade. I actually enjoyed Anarchy Online for a while.

Here is the full  a video of what it was going to look like
