    Well, it's been only a little over a month since New World was released, and the bloom is already off the rose.

    A combination of crazy bugs and a rapidly-dropping player base (going from nearly 1 million concurrent players shortly after launch to under 250,000 today) has the future of the game already in question.

    Seems like the post-mortem might come sooner than I thought!
