It's a bit worried some it has gone so many years without any increase in the number of players, it has been in a standstill or a small decline since a couple of years. The good thing is the game keeps some old players for a long time, it's not a game you give up on easy if you have already spent some time and resources on it. But the game don't get any younger and if they don't have the resources to constantly update it and at some regular interval make major updates to the gameengine it will not be able to keep on going. It's like 7 years, since Cryengine 2 update and they will soon have to move on from that I think. My fear is that MA is just to small to have the resources to keep on going with development.
