’Fate’ no more

In a recent update to their website, Epix Interactive sadly announced the closing of it’s doors and the cancellation of their title ’Fate’. The future was looking very promising for ’Fate’ as the title had the industry talking praises of the game without even laying eyes on it. Here’s the full post regarding the shutdown.

Over the last few months, we’ve worked many hours long into the night working on Fate, designing every aspect, planning every detail and trying to secure funds for the long haul. However, over the last few months securing funding was just not possible. Due to many reasons, the recession, technology companies like dot coms not living up to their potential, and mainly investors don’t understand how big an industry gaming is. We didn’t want to release any more info mainly because we didn’t want to get the hopes up of any fans or critics out there with promises we couldn’t keep due to lack of funds. So after our initial press release we decided to wait until we were sure we could continue. But as it turned out we ran out of what limited private funds we had before we could secure much larger funding from investment firms.

We’re saddened to be forced to close up shop and as of June 23rd, Epix will be no more. We tried our best to continue, but life is not a fairy tale and it doesn’t always work out the way we’d of hoped.

Fate promised to change the genre as we know it forever, perhaps it’s just to early for that to happen and somewhere down the line it might still, but for now it is gone.

We thank you for all your support over the last few months and putting up with what little information we gave, and we wish we could change things, we wanted to make it just as much as you wanted to play it. A week from now, Epix and this site will be gone forever...

It’s was fun while it lasted.

To all at Epix, best of luck to each of you.
