Because it's a catastrophic wreck of MMO development.

Although this might be more a General thing than MMO.

Rule #1 of MMO making.  ONLY make an MMO if your company is already profitable, DO not use investors.  Aside from Trion, I seriously can't think of a single MMO dev backed by investors which never got their game released.

Because Kingdoms of Amalur is an MMO and presumably this is going to kill it.

Unless KoA isn't an MMO in which case, er, whoops.

This is old news (dated 17th of May), 38 Studios closed about a week after this news story was published. It was discussed in the KoA thread.

It was supposed to be....but I don't think it made it there.

The game that actually came out isn't an MMO, but it was meant to be lead up to said MMO. In hindsight it'd probably have been best if they just made that single player game with some vague plans for an MMO should it be a break out hit.

This would be the best article I've read about the whole thing up to now:
