Greetings surface dwellers!
It’s been quite awhile since we’ve updated on the progress of DoKD and I wanted to reach out to the community and let everyone know what’s been happening.
The short of it is that the DokD project is, for all intensive purposes, shelved for the foreseeable future. It pains me to make this declaration, however, the events that have led to this decision are positive and encouraging.
Our team is made up of working developers who have full-time jobs, families, and responsibilities beyond the hobby that is MWH Games. Our modding projects are just that, a hobby, and thus come second to projects that pay the bills. Earlier this summer, three of our core members were brought onto high-profile, large projects that required more time from them than was going to allow further work on DoKD. It’s unfortunate for the mod, but it’s a testament to the quality and skill of our team that our work pauses not due to disinterest, but due to us needing to go back to work on AAA content.
On a slightly related note, if you’ve not seen the new trailer for the upcoming Skyrim DLC, check it out here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OsROQUWaHnQ. Those of you who followed our story closely will see a strong resemblance to the villains in our two story lines. It’s not the same story at all, but certainly a very similar character. With DoKD shelved, we’re all excited to see someone taking the Dragon Priest story line further and producing great content.
The MWH Games team will certainly be back in the future and we hope to see you all again when that happens. Will ever the din of Dwarven battle cries be heard amidst the snowy crags of Skyrim? Perhaps it will be another land altogether? Time will tell. Until then, Hammers High!
