Super Smash Bros Project M is ended, team heads to new project

The bummer in this situation is the fact that the original team of developers will no longer be working on Project M. The good news is – they’re not quitting the business altogether. A side-project, mostly for the fun of it, isn’t going to be the end-point for the people behind the popular Super Smash Bros mod-makers, and the mods that’ve already been made will remain in operation for the foreseeable future.

This just means you’ll still be able to load all the mods made in the Project M suite – they just won’t have any software support to back them up. If something breaks, you’re on your own. Also new characters and new development will not be happening, unless new developers step up to the plate.

Everything in the “final” version of Project M is available through the Project M website and whichever 3rd party hosts you trust.

According to Ryan Morrison, one of the creators of Project M and a self-appointed “Video Game Attorney”, “We weren’t contacted, issued a C&D, threatened or had legal action taken against us in any way, but we want it to stay that way.”

Morrison also shared that “There was no C&D, legal action, or threat. That and the announcement on the site is all we’re saying on the matter.”

Straight from the Project M website you’ll find a letter addressed to the public. In that letter is a confirmation that they’re ending their 6-year run on Project M to create something new.

“In the mean time, we plan to be hard at work on new projects, built from the ground up. We can’t spill the beans just yet, but know that we’re looking towards a fresh start with brand new designs.”

“Rather than splitting our focus, many of us want to dedicate ourselves to this new venture fully. In this way, we hope to maintain the level of quality and professionalism you’ve come to expect from us.”

We can’t wait to see what it is!
