Yet another MMO falls before Xbox Live's sword
Microsoft can add another MMO scalp to their trophy cabinet as Blueside's new MMO Kingdom Under Fire II has fallen foul of Xbox Live's strict regulations.
Champions Online and Final Fantasy XIV have already abandoned all hope of ever being released on the Xbox 360 and it looks like Kingdom Under Fire II will follow suit.
The game's director Sang Youn-Lee said: "Our initial plan was we wanted to develop the console version first the Xbox 360 version. The problem is very strict [policy], and it's not easy to change it. That's why we are still discussing our billing policy and we're asking for some changes from Microsoft. We actually have completed the system, but because of the policy, we felt that if we kept developing [it] the PC version would have come out too late."
Blueside's CEO Sejung Kim is still hopeful though: "We have developed the Kingdom Under Fire series on Xbox 360 and we have a fanbase there. It's very difficult not to develop a version of Kingdom Under Fire II on Xbox 360. That's why Microsoft wants to have KUFII."
