Enad Global 7 ceased the development of the Marvel MMORPG project at Daybreak Games, developers of DC Universe Online. This announcement came after the company said it re-evaluated the development risk and determined that it would reallocate resources to focus on alternative long-term projects.
As a result, EG7 has stated it will continue investing in smaller-sized projects, including enhancements to other games in their portfolio such as The Lords of the Rings Online, DC Universe Online, and other first-party titles.
