[Game website] I am sure a group of you readers have read about Otherland, an upcoming MMORPG based on Tad Williams’ Otherland novels. While the publisher has been confirmed to be Gamigo, the development studio Real-U (link) is actually located in Singapore and it is a subsidiary of German console game publisher dtp entertainment. I know, it sounds a little bit confusing, but here comes the bad news.
According to IGN (link), dtp entertainment has just filed for insolvency just a few hours ago. While the future of Otherland is not mentioned, it seems funding will be limited as insolvency means dtp entertainment is currently unable to repay business debts. Will Gamigo fund the project instead? For me, Otherland is looking really cool, and it will be a total waste if it is canned.
