Daybreak Games' President Russ Shanks has recently announced the
Cancellation of Everquest Next, while some information on the game was released in the past years
it seemed promising.
In the letter the main reason for the game's cancellation was that "It just wasn't fun"
Russ Shanks states in an open letter:
