CCP Confirms That Dust 514 Is Shutting Down For Good
Hope you're not planning to keep playing Dust 514 throughout 2016.
Few are, though, which is probably why developer CCP Games will be shutting things down soon.
CCP has announced in the game's official forums that the free-to-play shooter set in the Eve universe will be going offline on May 30. That will bring an end to three years of operation and unfortunately, it also means we won't be getting a previously planned update (1.3). The PlayStation 3 exclusive also won't have the option of any extra items, either, but those with accumulated Aurum – the game's currency – can keep spending it until the marketplace shuts down in May.
Said the team in a statement:
"We are very proud of what we've learned and accomplished with Dust 514 on PlayStation 3 over the past three years and it is an honor to be a part of such a dedicated community. We consider Dust 514 one of the best free-to-play offerings on the platform, but the years have caught up with us. It is with a heavy heart that we inform you that Dust 514 will be shutting down."
Well, there will be plenty of other multiplayer games in 2016, so no worries.
