Today was a good day, until the news broke that Xbox LIVE’s version of 1 vs. 100 is no more. Despite many gamers wishing for it to stay, the developers have moved away to work on different projects. In a statement on their blog they had this to say;
“We’re sorry to have kept you waiting in suspense before having to deliver this kind of news. We fully understand how some of you may be upset about the announcement. We hope you understand that it wasn’t an easy decision to make and there was a great deal of deliberation.
Our team really enjoyed making 1 vs. 100. Working on it was unlike anything we’d worked on before. Seeing the passionate feedback and interaction from our players was always appreciated. Even though we spent our days at work bringing the game to you, we still enjoyed playing alongside you. Our colleagues on the writing team made us laugh, too.
We knew starting on this project, that 1 vs 100 was completely different and would be an idea we would continue to evolve. We’ve learned a lot from this experience and we’re committed to applying these lessons to the cool, new stuff we’re working on, but can’t yet discuss.”
I had wondered what had happened to the game, and I was very disappointed to never have made it into the mob or become ‘the one’. What are your memories of 1 vs. 100? Discuss below!
