Dead Island: Epidemic is Shutting Down After a Month

By   /   1 year ago

It seems like the epidemic is over.

The PC MOBA game based on Deep Silver’s Dead Island franchise called Dead Island: Epidemic will shut down next month. The announcement comes from Deep Silver themselves on the soon-to-be-gone game’s website.

The developers will be leaving the servers and gaming forums open till October 15, but after that it’s bye-bye to the MOBA title.

Dead Island: Epidemic never truly had a full release. The game, termed by Deep Silver as a ZOMBA (Zombie Online Multiplayer Battle Arena), began with a closed alpha development stage, followed by a closed beta stage. Currently, it is in Early Access beta, but it seems this is the furthest it’s going to go.

If you’ve been a part of the Early Access beta and want to enjoy the game till its last minute, you can spend all your in-game currency. There will be big discounts on all characters and boosts. However, Deep Silver is yet to give any explanation of what would happen should you have a balance when the game closes on October 15.

It’s an unfortunate turn of events, but it’s not the first for the Dead Island franchise, which has been struggling with constant delays of Dead Island 2 and the eventual parting of Deep Silver with former developer Yager.
