Officials from Ubisoft have announced that they are to pull out of their deal with the newly established Warner Bros. Interactive, to co-publish massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) The Matrix Online. Although both companies were keen to show the decision had not created any bad blood no reason was given for the move, with analysts only able to speculate that the poor response to the movie sequels and the overcrowded nature of the MMORPG market caused Ubisoft to rethink its involvement. Developer Monolith is continuing to work on the game and hope to release an open beta program this spring. Source: GameSpot
