The Tribes Extreme
add-on to Starsiege: Tribes
has been cancelled. The game had been intended to give a single-player element to the successful multi-player only game as well as providing additional multi-player content. In a note of explanation on the Tribes Extreme
website, designer Nels Bruckner explained, "The single player component has taken us much longer to wrap our heads around than we originally anticipated and we just don't feel we have anything close to finished that would be worth charging for or releasing." The Tribes Extreme team
will merge with the group working on Tribes 2
. Tribes Extreme
's loss is Tribe 2's gain
. That game, which had been planned as multi-player only, will now feature a single-player element.
