Trion Worlds has been disbanded. All employees are now terminated. The matter is now being handled by the Court.
“The situation was discussed in general among counsel and the Court, and it was agreed that counsel would continue to discuss the situation to keep up to date and formulate plan of action for this case under the circumstances. Defense counsel agreed to seek approval of the Defendant client to provide information about the subject transactions to Plaintiffs’ counsel under confidentiality order. It was agreed to defer setting of class certification, and discovery plan until the next CMC.”
Defense counsel first became aware on October 18, 2018 of the transfer of assets of TWI to take place on October 22, 2018 and the corporate dissolution of TWI to follow shortly thereafter. Defense counsel has been actively investigating and assessing since that time the status of TWI-ABC with respect to the claims presented in this action.
Now that the court is handling the bankruptcy it is clear that Trion Worlds is kaput.
Trion began early development on their first MMORPG, then titled Heroes of Telara, which would go on to be renamed Rift: Planes of Telara, until finally being released as Rift in March 2011. In 2011, in addition to the renaming of Heroes of Telara to Rift: Planes of Telara, Trion World Network, Inc. renamed itself as Trion Worlds, Inc.
Trion as an independent company is now defunct. Gamigo now has the rights to the Trion Worlds operation which now distributes the games. Gamigo is now publishing the game former Trion games as an operating subsidiary.
