I made some posts to Heavy Water and they really aren't interested in Home because they can't make enough money to support themselves. Now, this could be from a number of things:

 

1. Not enough users who spend money in Home

2. Time consuming development process for PS3 hardware

3. Sonny's percentage is TOO LARGE A CUT for developers to sustain themselves and their companies

4. No support from Sony for developers (holding back spaces because of "O&A" concerns)

 

Here is the post the response I received from Heavy Water:

 

"Heavy Water Sadly, there is no money in Home to support a full studio and it fluctuates quite a bit... We will do what we can but its not that easy and we would like to see users create their own worlds,, hence, AGF!" 

  


Not exactly a hopeful statement from Heavy Water.

@LizardWrestler despite saying Blizzard officially, many licenses are dolled out to dedicated Home devs to create under their companies name. In fact many many promos were worked on in Home by the HW team even before they used that moniker. Were you aware that The Playground space (personal and public) and items were created by Heavy Waters' Matt? He told us so at an AZ4 developer expo a few years back. The fact they are tweeting about it would seal that they made these also in my mind. But nothing is ever sure in the world of Home *shrugs*

Let us not forget that Heavy Water made the Chamber Apartment long before we knew who they were.  


They did?  Woman Surprised Where did you find this out from?

Yes I had heard that also at the Developer expo last year. It even looks like it has Heavy Waters style too it. He really likes those dragons too.

Here's a good link for those interested in H2O's track record, in and outside of Home.  Keep in mind some of this stuff never went live(millenium falcon, etc)

When "earlier"? Hours ago? Days? Weeks? Months?

The above comment is my opinion, unless I state a fact. You can disagree with my opinion, but facts are facts.

Like 10 hours ago, they also said that they reset the servers, might check if it works after the weekly update Smiley Happy

So let's see... Over the last several months they...

 

Haven't released any new content in Home.

Their store in the Mall was removed.

They stopped talking about Home on their website, facebook, and twitter - and didn't reply to any PMs or emails.

They haven't posted on this or any other Home forum.

They haven't participated in any recent Home developer event like Forum, AZ4, and HSM events with developers.

They have yet to respond to Sony's tech support on issues with their Gift Machine in Avalon Keep and customers who had their progress wiped out.

 

But because they will reset their servers, that qualifies they are still developing content for Home?

Always nice to start the day with a smile and a good laugh. Smiley Happy
