Shorah,

In 2004, Cyan Worlds, Inc. released Until Uru to the Uru Live and the Myst communities. Until Uru was a way for the fans to keep the dream of Uru Live alive in the hope that it might one day receive a second chance. As most of you already know, Uru Live is being given that second chance and Myst Online: Uru Live is scheduled to launch on February 15th. And so, as the name "Until Uru" suggests, the time has come for Until Uru to fade away, so that we all (Cyan as well as the Community) can focus on the new opportunity that Uru Live has been given.

As of Monday, Feb. 5th, Until Uru and the D’mala shard will be shut down.

The shutting down of the Until Uru servers should not be perceived as a dead end for user-created content. Cyan Worlds, Inc. is actively pursuing plans so that one day users will be able to create content to be used in Myst Online: Uru Live.

On behalf of everyone at Cyan Worlds, Inc., we would again like to say thank you to the shard owners and to all the Until Uru participants who have helped to keep the Uru dream alive.

The Myst Online Team

Three cheers for the return of Uru!

We no longer need the "Until."

While it will be sad to see some of our local flavor gone, we've all waited so long for this day, and I'm personally looking forward to being fully reunited.

Wow.

The day has come. Last year at this time I was wondering if anything would survive for another month. Now we have the whole new Uru Live.

While I'm sad to see the end of UU, looking backward sort of pales in comparison to what's unseen over the horizon ahead.

Why do I get the feeling some people will be annoyed about losing their own shards? :roll:

I mean, we all knew D'mala was going, but I had heard that the rest of UU would be sticking around... Guess we're wrong.

Thank you for the support you showed the community for supplying both areas, at no or very little cost to us. It was greatly appreciated.

Hooray for Uru Live!! UU and D'mala will be fondly missed, but it's time to move on to better things. And why not? UU has fulfilled its purpose. Uru lives!

If this means that the auth server is shutting down then I will not be playing Uru Live!

Lets hear the final words?

It's not so bad.
A unified Uru has been a long time coming.

What will I do with my Linux box now though?

Cyan have done a lot of things over the years that many people may have disagreements over. But in my opinion it has been the shard owners and the until uru community that have kept Uru alive in its darkest times. Cyan owe us that to keep the auth server and the UU shards alive!

Yes, if the auth server is removed I will leave

You did read correctly.

However greydragon did say:

May be you did not read this, hopefully you will take this into consideration before you make your decession final.
