Between the leak about Uru within a month and the DRC postings, it seems likely Uru is going to return. But how? Has Cyan found funding? Have they finished cleaning the code? Are they just pulling our leg?

I think it'll probably be a hybrid, although maybe not paid content. Cyan might lay the ground rules for it and create a small storyline to explain the new state of the cavern. Possibly DRC members showing up once in awhile, and run primarily by the guilds.

You forgot the option "I don't care, I just want it back!"

I think it's coming back as an open source game, with some IC input via the DRC. OOC: Cyan will want some influence on the "official" server with approval of story content. I don't think they - Cyan - are in the position of supplying any new content via Ages (and they've pretty much said the same), but I don't see why they couldn't develop at least a rudimentary story and guild it via DRC or Bahro or Yeesha input. How much did it cost them to add a few posts to the DRC forum? Nothing, I'd wager. Surely they can at least feed their fans a few morsels of the same. Speaking only for myself, I love hearing from the DRC, even if, hypothetcally, I disagree with their decisions.

You did not have a choice for "I don't care, as long as it comes back."

I expect it to come back, for a start, just the way it was, when it was running at Game Tab and was closed down there 2 years ago.
I expect fan made ages will be added some time later - supervised by Cyan, if they have enough spare cycles to do so.
If Cyan has funds to do so they might add also some new extentions later on.

I didn't vote, because I don't know how it will return. I would REALLY love it to be OpenSource, yet with a small amount of Cyan Worlds in the picture, so they can return in future (if the game will be popular) and start making money of it again :) .

That's my hope as well.

The point of the poll isn't how you would *like* Uru to return, but how you think it *will* return. That's why I didn't put in an "I don't care" option.

I voted the 3rd option because i think an hibryd could be the best option for Myst.

Having a main story developed by Cyan and player content as well that adds more stories while Cyan is busy for the next episode, can resolve the idle time between episodes and fits well in a p2p business model.

Despite the OP stated the poll is related on "how it will return" and not "how you would like it will return", i answered considering the second way. Unless you are Rand Miller or a cyan employee, no one can know how it will return.

The choices are too all-or-nothnig right up front. There is no choice that fits my prediction of small steps over time.

Ditto. That would be my prediction as well. I think they've been pretty clear about that.

Frankly, that's nonsense. Small steps lead to something.
