Hundreds of MMOs have come and gone since the genre first started 20 years ago. Throughout the year we will be cataloging the launches, expansions, major accomplishments, and sadly the shutdowns as well day by day. Much of this information is lost, buried in the archives of the internet. Find out what happened on June 3rd in MMO History.
2014 – Wildstar Launch
Wildstar was announced at Gamescom in 2011 by Carbine Studios and NCSoft. It wouldn’t launch until 2014 with a subscription. Under this model it struggled to gain traction and soon Carbine was changing it to a free to play model. Today the game is heading for Steam where it’s hoped it will reach a wider audience.
