Battleborn Will Finally Sunset In 2021

While Gearbox might be riding high right now with Borderlands 3, it wasn't that long ago that they attempted a whole new IP that didn't fare well. Development and updates for Battleborn officially ended two years ago and, honestly, I thought that the game was done around that same time. Apparently it's still been kicking around, but publisher 2K is now calling it quits and pulling the servers down... in another two years.

QC Games and Breach Are Shutting Down

In a surprise announcement yesterday, QC Games announced that their studio will be shutting down, as will their action-RPG Breach. It's not clear just yet what the plan is for sunsetting this title, but the servers are still up and running if you wanted to get one last game in before it goes, though there's a certain caveat to that (see below).

PC Servers for Blacklight: Retribution Are Shutting Down Next Month

You may recall a certain free-to-play FPS that came out 7 years ago (7 YEARS?!) called Blacklight: Retribution. I know, I know... in video game terms, we might as well be talking about the Sega CD. Anyways, developer Hardsuit Labs recently posted that they will be shutting down the servers for the PC version next month, after which you'll no longer be able to play the game. As often seems to be the trend these days with these sort of "games as a service" getting shut down, all premium items in the PC store will be free so you can just go nuts.

Orcs Must Die! Unchained Shutting Down In April

Last week, Robot Entertainment announced that their free-to-play third-person action/tower defense-ish game, Orcs Must Die! Unchained, will be coming to an end this April. Sadly, it sounds like this attempt to shift the popular franchise to the "games as a service" model didn't pan out for the Texas-based developer.

No word about this affecting other regions

Starhawk's Online Capabilities Have Been Terminated For Europe

Over the weekend, it appears Sony Interactive Entertainment Europe sunsetted the servers for the 2012 PlayStation 3 title, Starhawk. A note has been added to all European PS Store listings for the game that basically says "you can no longer play this online." There's been no official statement about whether this is getting applied to all regions or not, so for now, this appears to only be affecting the one region.

Sad Days For The Happiest Of Wars

Happy Wars PC And 360 To Shut Down In 2018

ToyLogic has announced that Happy Wars will be shutting down on both the Xbox 360 and PC platforms on December 17th, 2018. Unfortunately, Happy Wars does not appear to be part of Xbox Backwards Compatibility, meaning anyone who wants to continue fighting will either have to re-purchase it for the Xbox One, or hope that Microsoft adds the game to their lineup before December.
