Publishers: Trion Worlds
The data recently published by independent analysts at MMOData reveal that Trion Worlds‘ flagship MMO is in trouble. After releasing just over a year ago in March 2011, the game launched with about 600,000 active player subscriptions. Over the last 16 months, they have fallen to less than half of that.
The developers are hopeful that features planned for the first expansion, End of Nations, will boost interest in Rift again, and they are cramming as many new features into the existing game as possible. The Conquest system of PvP was incorporated in the last patch, and the upcoming 1.9 will bring a Barbershop for free appearance changes.
The numbers reported by MMOData don’t reflect any free trial accounts, and that may be where the differences in reported numbers lie. However, trial accounts won’t save the struggling MMO.
