Auto Assault Grinding to a Halt Later this Year

A brief announcement on the official Auto Assault site reveals that NetDevil's vehicular combat MMO will no longer be supported past August 31, 2007. Publisher NCsoft will not be billing any existing subscribers past their current billing periods; the company plans to release more information on how players will be affected.

There was no indication as to whether new subscriptions are being honored, though Shacknews was able to successfully sign up for and download the game's free 14-day trial.

Launched last April, Auto Assault was met with generally positive, if not wildly enthusiastic, critical reception. NetDevil recently announced plans to heavily revamp one of its other MMOs, JumpGate. The company is also creating LEGO Universe, an MMO based on the popular plastic interlocking bricks.

Inquiries have been sent to NCsoft on the matter, but a response had not been received at the time this story was published.
