And It's Goodbye From Tabula Rasa...


Richard Garriott's last great effort to make the MMO of our dreams is to shut down in February 2009. It's always particularly sad when an MMO meets its end - they don't get to be saved from the bargain bin like other games. They're just gone. Sniff.

The official message is here:

So it is with regret that we must announce that Tabula Rasa will end live service on February 28, 2009. Before we end the service, we'll make Tabula Rasa servers free to play starting on January 10, 2009.

Free stuff! Hurray! I mean: Yes, what a shame.
