Scavengers Shutting Down Darwin Project

Darwin Project

Scavengers has officially announced that they will be shutting down development on battle royale shooter ‘Darwin Project’.

The development company made the announcement in an official blog post putting an end to the game that couldn’t seem to follow up a successful beta with an equally successful official launch on Xbox One and PC back in early 2018.

“It is with a heavy heart that we have decided to stop developing new features for the game” the company said in the statement. “April’s update was the last one for the foreseeable future.

Five years ago, we started Darwin Project, our first project. It was a very bold and ambitious one to say the least, and we have been fortunate enough to have worked on it for so long, with the support of our partners and community. Over the past years, we saw a decreasing playerbase, and have been working hard on finding solutions –from a new platform development (PS4) to bringing new content (class system, battle passes, systemic maps, customizable craftwheel, new tiles, live events), spectator interactions extension, and continuous optimizations. We have assessed all potential solutions and scenarios, but unfortunately, Darwin Project is unable to sustain itself thus forcing us to come to this very difficult decision. We are still very proud to see what had started as a scribble on a piece of paper become a fully released game that has reached millions of players. We will keep Darwin Project servers up at least through to the end of the year, and you will still be able to play the game.

We truly and deeply appreciate everything the community has put into the Darwin Project. We received tons of passionate ideas and suggestions to improve the game. It shows how incredibly supportive you have been throughout this journey. We can’t thank you enough for your love and support over the past four years.”
