it was probably the best 1st offering a company had put out there, but lack of experience in the dev world killed him. He saw huge revenue other games made and thought he could do the same without a previous franchise that had a fanboy following.
I really liked the game you did become OP in the game but you do in Witcher2 too.

I wouldn't be surprised. It is better to get a following with a solo RPG (cheaper, shorter release time, less infrastructure) and then lead into the MMO. The change was logical and practical, even if it didn't save them.
I believe they still had intentions to do the MMO based on what I've read.
