So long Turbine and thanks for all the fish!

Welcome to Standing Stone Games.
Standing Stone Games FAQ.

The short story seems to be that the devs and staff of LotRO and DDO have bought themselves out from under WB and created a new company to run/develop both games.

(Whether the staff was part of the buyout or whether someone else bought it out and then hired them is an open question.)

On the forums, most of the devs and staff have already posted to announce their participation in the new company. No obvious losses.

From the FAQ: "Turbine will no longer be involved in the development of LOTRO and DDO. They will continue on the development of their products." No mention of what those products are.

Separately, the demise of Asheron's Call was announced. No player supported servers either.
