Rift to receive a new update Q1 2022? #IntPiPoMo

I just watched a Youtube video analysing the most recent Gamigo financial report. In the video KiraTV discusses that the report mentions that Rift has not received any updates for a “longer period” but that it is due to get a large update in the first quarter of 2022.

That’s actually a pretty surprising and exciting prospect if it can be believed. I always loved Rift, and have returned several times to the game to play it casually. If the game starts receiving new content updates I would be attracted back for sure. Emphasis on content, however, if this update just ends up being a “season” or “fresh start server” – basically a way to keep players engaged by incentivising replaying the old content again, then I’d not be that interested.

As is mentioned multiple times in the Rift Forum discussion on this: it is one thing to make vague promises to the playerbase in a Dev Letter or other marketing communication, but investor reports are held to higher scrutiny. So, promising new content in 2022 in that context leaves me a little more hopeful it may actually be on the cards…
