Developer cites Microsoft as the cause

Bad news for all of you out there who were enjoying the free-to-play Ascend: Hand of Kul on the Xbox 360 -- the game is no longer available on the platform. According to developer Signal Studios this decision was made for them by Microsoft, and the game was just discontinued out of the blue.

As a side note, Ascend wasn't a niche game -- it reportedly acquired 2.5 million users as of this past May on Xbox Live.
