Cyan Worlds, the studio masterminded by Rand and Robyn Miller who created the Myst universe and franchise, have somehow defied their 'End Of Ages' as a formidable developer of adventure games for over a decade. The company's closure was primarily for financial reasons.
But Rand Miller has just announced to Gamespot a 180 degree turn for the company: they are back in business. However, he hasn't yet elaborated on the details of how this happened:
"We've had a reprieve.....Managed to pull a rabbit out of the hat (that I can't give details about yet), so we rehired almost everybody. Crazy industry. It's giving me whiplash!"
We'll have more breaking news on this as it comes, but for now check out our preview of their former swan song, Myst V: End Of Ages.
