It's the final weekend of Asheron's Call. Three days from now, the servers will be shut down, and 18 years of video game history will be lost forever.
Asheron's Call 2 has come back from the dead: creator Turbine has opened a new server for the MMO seven years after it was deemed no longer profitable and shut down.
Eurogamer has learnt that The Lord of the Rings Online will continue to be distributed and run by Codemasters in Europe, despite Warner's recent purchase of developer Turbine.
Lord of the Rings Online developer Turbine has obtained USD 40 million in a third round of venture capital funding, according to an online report by Private Equity Hub - and also according to GamesIndustry.biz.
Massively Multiplayer Online RPG, Asheron's Call 2, is set to be shut-down by the end of the year due to the game no longer being profitable, according to its developer, Turbine Entertainment.
