Yep, it's official:

This just tells me that THQ is going to rush it to market to keep from going under. The fact that they're letting 79 Vigil and 39 Relic employees go supports this theory.

Damn

Our entire expansion plans hinged on that being an MMO. We will need to seriously rethink things now.

When they say "Online community features" I'm betting they're talking about something like Battlelog or CoD elite. I'm guessing there will be some clan features built in to the game. So while it probably won't be the same, we can still plan on our expansion.

Of course, but it won't be the same. At least with VASSAL there is a whole new avenue of expansion.

We'll probably Dub Diablo3 or Path of Exile to be a community game as well, so we have that MMO fix

It's not 100% their fault. Hosting an MMO is a huge expense for servers and support staff. With the financial woes THQ is having, it was probably down to releasing it as they are or canning it altogether.

Hmmm single player with multiplayer aspects and support? I wonder if they took a look at Mass effect 3 and thought that's a better option considering the way their company is going.

Actually, they could release the server code and allow other people to host the servers. You still pay to play, but the hosting group gets discounts.

Then you hardcode the IP of the hosted server into the game. To the normal user, it would look just like a WoW server list

If gothic wars was able to host a sever, that could be additional revenue for the site. I of course would be so for that. Facion mod discount =D

That was our hope Dern but alas. Mind you, if there are dedicated servers for the shitty game we're gonna get we'll go for that instead

Cool, there may be hope. Its not from the games we play but, rather it comes from US, the community! I just have to keep telling myself lol I CAN make it workout, just as I have done on Space marine.
