Codemasters has taken the decision to cancel further development of Dragon Empires, the company's massively multiplayer online role playing project due to technical issues.

Many of the game's development team, including programmers and artists, are being moved to work on current and future titles, while the Dragon Empires website and its forums will remain open for the time being.

According to Codemasters, this decision "does not impact on Codemasters' long-term ambitions in the massively multiplayer online gaming market and the company remains very active in evaluating future opportunities."
