Tabula Rasa isn’t screwed, says NCsoft

Talking to Eurogamer, NCSoft has rebutted recent talk that Richard Garriot’s MMO Tabula Rasa is in dire straights.

“Tabula Rasa has a dedicated player base, which is growing month on month,” said NCsoft Europe’s David Blundell.

“Tabula Rasa offers players a different kind of MMO experience, enhancing our portfolio of game titles. The game play mechanics are very different to that of a typical MMO – those who have experienced the game have recognised these innovative features and applauded them.

“A recent European trial promotion was met with great demand; we will be doing a similar promotion later in the year.”

The comments come after the game was seen to barely feature in a Q1 financial report.

    Kudos to them. The game seems to be doing well, with a solid userbase.

    Everyone seems to think if you don’t have the number of subscriptions World of Warcraft has, you’re an automatic failure. Even if you had only 100,000 active subscribers a week, that’s a hell of a lot of money going into the coffers.

    It says on that EG report that it’s got about 75,000 paying subs. That’s plenty, frankly.

    I suppose the difference is that sales of a few tens of thousands wouldn’t be a lot for any other AAA undertaking, but for MMOs when you factor in the fact they’re getting paid every month it’s probably less of a failure than it sounds.
