MMORPGs published by multiple companies

Some MMORPGs are published by multiple companies at a time. This is usually because the same MMORPG is published in different countries, for example there could be a UK and US version, even though they are identical. And this is has its advantages and disadvantages. The good thing about it is, if one of the publishers decided to shut down the MMORPG, the other would still exist. But in a way the fact that the MMORPG exists with two publishers is a bad thing because that means those Publishers are competing for players and the chances of both of them shutting down are increased greatly.

But there seems to be a lot of MMORPGs out there that are available on multiple publishers and in a way I don't like the idea of separating a community. And because MMORPGs are more competitive than ever it just doesn't seem like a good idea for multiple publishers to host a single MMORPG.
