Logic Artists close down...
And join Dynasty Studios to make a multiplayer survival game with NFTs.
The article is from December 2021, so it's a done deal.

Expeditions: Rome is their swan song. Loved both Conquistador and Vikings, so it's sad to see.

It probably also means Rome won't be getting any major support after the launch like DLCs.

I feel the need to clarify two things.

First off, not everyone who worked on Expeditions: Rome will join Dynasty.

Secondly, as others have pointed out here, the Expeditions series has been owned by THQ Nordic since before Rome began development. The creation of Dynasty will not affect the support of Rome nor the DLC plans.

As for Dynasty I can't really talk about that because I have nothing to do with it :)

You do know that THQ Nordic bought the IP of the Expeditions Series in 2018? That THQ Nordic was working alongside LA on Rome?

Logic thinking should lead to the realization, that it is highly unlikely, if you buy a IP like this, spend money, time and effort on it, to simply let it die.

Sure, nothing is set in stone, but THQ Nordic is not known to be another EA at all.

THQ does not own LA. LA are going to make the survival NFTs. While THQ will still hold the Expedition game rights

Looks like logic artists just changing name to dynasty studios? Not joining anyone? You can see it in Rome that they try to dumb down their system to make it easier for casual gamers. And now they will make a copy of all the hundreds other multiplayer survival games. Let's hope they fail and return to what they know how to make and what we love :)
Well, that'll be a refund.

Could you explain to me, as of why you refund the game now? I am truly curious

I was nice seeing them getting better with each game, it's sad to see them succumb to greed and trends

Another thought, but they've known they were closing down for a while now and they've never mentioned it on any of their social media or their website. You'd think there would be a "This is our last Expeditions game. Please come out and support us as we move onto the next chapter in our careers" message or something to drive up sales or interest. The absolute silence tells me that they know how gamers are going to react to this, and they don't want to face the backlash. Also, that they don't care what their fans think, they just want to be greedy and get in on the NFT scam market before it collapses.

sad news, but although i'm eager to play this last entry i feel the game got worse with each game. Conquistador is still the superior game for me, more mature with better writting and choices than in viking. Also much more discovery in exploring and choices in the endings.

THQ still own the rights. I think we will still see more for this game.

What a shame.

Its not because of THQ (because they are helping with the game) if you are having this in consideration, Logic (they are game vision and direction) just made a bad move that depicts theory about making Rome game just to fund their NFT project, and dropping Rome on THQ, which im glad because THQ can continue the game legacy if they want to do so. But Logic just showed how they want bigger cash flow around them with NFT. And those "tales" about "We dont want to work with blockchain to only earn more money and because it is profitable, we want to push something new" its just plain stupid, you can see NFT is like a financial pyramid for dummies right now.

I know it sounds mean, but why support company that wont exist anymore and fund new company with their new NFT nonsense that dont have any ties to previous Expeditions brand ideas. If THQ make new game on their own and it will be good, i will buy it without second thought.

THQ no longer exists, for like 10 years already, just in case if you didn't know.

Well it's two different companies, you know...

that really sucks. i was hoping that this company would continue making more expedition games. oh well , i guess nothing last forever.
Benjin Jan 20 @ 12:56am 
Wow, and here I was thinking that I should put my money behind this as a token of my support for the future in the form of DLCs / more games like it coming out from them etc. Glad I read this article before doing so because OP is right, that is the end of Expeditions as we know it. Thank you for sharing the link!
