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.
