Realm Interactive's first and only project was TradeWars: Dark Millennium. The company was acquired by Richard Garriott's Destination Games/NCsoft Austin in 2003. Soon after, the team was dissolved, with members shifting to other projects including City of Heroes and Tabula Rasa.

David Adams, co-founder of Realm Interactive, left NCsoft to found Vigil Games, taking comic book artist Joe Mad with him. While at Vigil, the team developed Darksiders and Darksiders 2, and were deep into development of Warhammer 40K: Dark Millennium when THQ, the company that owned Vigil, filed for chapter 11 in 2013. Vigil was closed, but David Adams and many of his staff were picked up by Crytek (Crysis, Far Cry, etc), which opened a studio in Austin called Crytek USA.

Realm COO Salvatore Sferlazza and programmer Dave Bernat recently founded Bandera Games. Artist Brad Jeansonne joined Certain Affinity as lead concept artist. In 2003, John Pritchett recovered all TradeWars rights from NCsoft and returned to development and support of classic TradeWars under EIS. In 2008, he joined 21-6 Productions. In 2009, he formed Black Squirrel Studios as a solo side-project.
