The company Supercell announced that the development of Everquest had to stop when it encountered many unexpected difficulties.
Supercell, a development company based in Finland, announced one more game after Clash Quest had to stop development: Everquest. The 12-year-old company decided to end development of Everquest after concluding that the game was substandard.
The announcement also mentions that players who have invested in in-app purchases can move into investing in other Supercell games like Clash of Clans, Clash Royale, Hay Day, Boom Beach, and Brawl Stars. The limited testing period in some countries will be stopped.
Finnish studio Supercell started developing Everdale over a year ago. A company representative said: “We inform you that the team has decided to end the development of Everdale – a difficult decision. At Supercell, we set high standards for our games to be perfect with our users. Our goal is to make games that last a lifetime and are remembered by gamers.”
Although the company “did its best,” it became clear that Everdale did not live up to Supercell’s ambitions. Everdale’s test servers will be down forever on October 31.
Supercell launched Everdale with the aim of creating a counterweight cooperative building game with the same competitive gameplay as other titles: Brawl Stars and Clash of Clans. In an interview last August, three core members of the Everdale team discussed the idea of a new IP, rather than a series of leading brands.
Everdale isn’t the first Supercell game to have its release closed. In 2019, the PvP strategy game Rush Wars ran into some problems after three months in beta and closed after a year. Hay Day Pop closed after 8 months. Supercell also closed Clash Quest in August, the game was released in April 2021.
The announcement on Supercell’s official site marks the company’s cancellation of two of its four games in development in a relatively short period of time. Clash Mini and Clash Heroes are still in development.
