Earlier this week, a server outage sparked a flurry of rumors that Playdom had pulled the plug on Chronicles of Spellborn MMO, which the social games publisher recently acquired from Acclaim Games. We contacted Playdom to see if it was RIP for Spellborn, and a company rep had both good and bad news to share. The good news -- the server outage was temporary. The bad news -- Chronicles of Spellborn will no longer be around starting September.
"Yes we do plan to close the game at the end of the month," a rep tells us in an email. "The servers were down on Monday, but that was due to an unrelated technical issue; the game should be back up now until the end of this month."
So for those of you who have been wondering why you haven't been getting any response from Playdom regarding CoS -- well, that pretty much sums it up. Maybe, like a few other deceased MMOs, someone will figure out how host a version of the game so your warrior/mage/rogue can keep grinding for eternity.
