Following earlier word that creator Richard Garriott was leaving the company to pursue presumably more directly space-related interests after an inspiring visit aboard the International Space Station, NCsoft has announced that his epic sci-fi MMO will soon be shuttered as well:
Last November we launched what we hoped would be a ground breaking sci-fi MMO. In many ways, we think we’ve achieved that goal. Tabula Rasa has some unique features that make it fun and very different from every other MMO out there. Unfortunately, the fact is that the game hasn’t performed as expected. The development team has worked hard to improve the game since launch, but the game never achieved the player population we hoped for.
So it is with regret that we must announce that Tabula Rasa will end live service on February 28, 2009.
Message from the Tabula Rasa Team [NCsoft]
