The game was originally announced in 2010, and has had a pretty shaky development history since then, with rumors of layoffs and development standstills. Eurogamer has now reported that 56 members of the development team have been laid off, with the remaining members having moved on to EVE Online.

The reasons behind CCP’s decision are not too clear, but a spokesperson for the company commented that they “dreamed of a game that would transport you completely into the sweeping fantasy of World of Darkness, but had to admit that our efforts were falling regretfully short”.

New Trailer Explains What Exactly Disney Magical World Is

The latest trailer for the upcoming Disney Magical World attempts to explain exactly what the game is and how it plays.

The game appears to take a lot of cues from Animal Crossing, allowing you to decorate yourself and your home, interact with assorted characters, and go fishing. On top of that however, you will find card collecting, the ability to take photos with Disney characters, and the one thing that's been missing from Animal Crossing for years – ghost fighting and hunting.
