We’ve got some rather sad news for fans of poor Hollywood movies and terrible IP-based MMO games, The Mummy Online has now officially closed. I imagine that you’re probably somewhat surprised but not because The Mummy Online has closed, but because it actually existed in the first place.
Bigpoint are renowned for their larger-than-life advertising campaigns but a few of their MMO titles based on famous IP’s have been missing out recently. The Mummy Online didn’t offer much past its first week of content and Ice Age Online appears to be going the way of the wooly mammoth.
The developers claimed that The Mummy Online wasn’t attracting enough players to warrant any updates so the browser-based giants decided to turn their attention to some of their more popular titles. The official website has now been closed and all services ceased.
