CCP's World of Darkness MMO canceled

CCP has been teasing its World of Darkness MMO for years now--since 2006, in fact. Based upon Vampire: The Masquerade, the game would have players controlling vampires in a dark, modern world filled with mages, werewolves, and other creatures.

While the team was significantly reduced in 2011, CCP explained that the MMO "lives on," requiring more development time "before dedicating the substantial resources required to bring this experience to market." Last year, CCP confirmed that 70 people were working on the game, still in "pre-production" at the time.

Online games live and die. EVE Online has managed to survive ten years, but one day, it may succumb to the fate the befalls even the greatest games. When that day comes, will your time spent in CCP's universe be remembered?

EVE: Valkyrie will be exclusive to Oculus Rift at launch

Perhaps the most high-profile game for Oculus Rift is EVE: Valkyrie. A small team at CCP worked on a quick demo showcasing space combat in VR, but they've expanded it into a full game ever since gamers have raved about it.

While much of Valkyrie's appeal is due to its support of VR, gamers hoping to play a traditional version of the game will be disappointed to discover that the game will launch as an Oculus exclusive.
