Midgard Becomes Nibelheim

Funcom has announced that all development on their upcoming PC MMORPG Midgard has been put on hold indefinitely. Midgard was going to be set in a world of Norse mythology and brutal Vikings, thus creating a complex online society based on that culture.

According to the developer, Midgard was too similar to its competition, which consisted of popular medieval fantasy games. Still, Funcom considers the game to be ahead of its time, and therefore the developer has left the option of continuing the project open. Should Funcom decide to breathe life into Midgard once again, it won't happen anytime before 2006 by the company's estimates.
