MMORPG Gods & Heroes put on indefinite hold

startrekonlineOriginally rumored on Warcry, Perpetual Entertainment confirmed today they’ve placed its debut MMORPG Gods & Heroes: Rome Rising on indefinite hold.

In the post Chris McKibbin, co-founder and president of Perpetual Entertainment, explained the troubles when developing several different MMORPGs at once but thanked the support of its fans and beta testers.

"The development team established some very lofty and ambitious goals when the initial work was started on Gods & Heroes. Recently, we took a step back to evaluate the competitive landscape, the game’s current state, and the overall goals for our organization. And while we are truly proud of and pleased with what we have created in Gods & Heroes, we also realize that achieving the level of quality and polish that we are committed to will take a significant investment.

The Perpetual team is faced with a unique challenge of simultaneously developing both Gods & Heroes and Star Trek Online in addition to growing our Online Game Platform business. After assessing all of Perpetual’s opportunities, we have made the decision to put the development of Gods & Heroes on indefinite hold."

Perpetual had lofty goals indeed and it was a pretty big risk to invest in not one but two MMORPGs as your debut projects. Still, the folks who make up Perpetual came from various gaming backgrounds, so Star Trek Online still has some starpower behind it.

Star Trek Online is slated for release on PC in late 2008.
