There are some online games out there that just won't die. That's not really a bad thing, but I have to say that after playing a game and having everything I'd worked on deleted for the second time, I wouldn't really feel like going back to it. That being said, Myst Online: Uru Live is coming back.
It seems that Cyan Worlds (developer of the game) has regained control, and will be opening the game to fans once again. In addition, they will even be allowing fans to create new content for the game.
The game will be re-launched and gamers will be able to play again by paying somewhere around $25 for six months of gameplay. Cyan Worlds noted that the price isn't there so they can turn a profit, but rather to simply cover server costs.
