If you haven't heard by now, the 1 vs. 100 show for Xbox Live is no longer being produced. Most you of you, like myself, have been anxiously waiting for the next season as I fully enjoyed the game a ton. This is a big disappointment I am sure to you many of you, as it is to myself. You can read on to see the final farwell from the 1 vs. 100 team.

As you’ve probably seen by now, we are no longer developing 1 vs. 100 for Xbox LIVE.
We're sorry to have kept you waiting in suspense before having to deliver this kind of news. We fully understand how some of you may be upset about the announcement. We hope you understand that it wasn’t an easy decision to make and there was a great deal of deliberation.
Our team really enjoyed making 1 vs. 100. Working on it was unlike anything we’d worked on before. Seeing the passionate feedback and interaction from our players was always appreciated. Even though we spent our days at work bringing the game to you, we still enjoyed playing alongside you. Our colleagues on the writing team made us laugh, too.
We knew starting on this project, that 1 vs 100 was completely different and would be an idea we would continue to evolve. We’ve learned a lot from this experience and we’re committed to applying these lessons to the cool, new stuff we’re working on, but can’t yet discuss.
We think we can all agree that 1 vs 100 brought many players many fond experiences and memories. It was truly one-of-a-kind, and none of it would've been possible without a dedicated, passionate community fan base playing the game regularly and stepping up as awesome contestants. It was always great to see the message board, Twitter and Facebook light up with supportive and encouraging messages when a “regular” was the One. Being part of something that resulted in new friendships, loyalists like JAriel, the introduction of gaming to “non-gamers” and the humbling success of folks like mutantdog123 and A Patch of Blue was an intangible reward for the team that we’ll miss.
We hope to focus on the fun times playing 1 vs 100 as we look back on the two seasons and the enormous amount of time and effort that the development teams and the fans poured into the game. For now we say goodnight to 1 vs 100. You were truly part of something new, exciting, and unprecedented, and we thank you for all of your support along the way.
Obviously the team is working on new projects and hopefully they can be as awesome as the free 1 vs. 100 service was. I had many great moments in 1 vs. 100 and they will surley be missed. R.I.P. 1 vs.100.
