Seven years after its initial launch, the first-person-shooter Survarium has closed down for good. As of June 1st, the game has been delisted from Steam and will no longer be available for online play.
The game’s developer, Ukrainian-based Vostok Games, had said in March that it would be “taking a break from our work” following the Russian invasion of the country which had forced much of their development team to re-locate from the capital, Kyiv. However the decision to shut down the game was actually announced in February, two weeks before the war began.
“We truly cannot express our gratitude towards all of your many years of support, new and old players alike,” wrote Vostok Games. “Through the ups and downs many of you stood by us in solidarity. That is truly something special that we will always be grateful for. While we close the book we will always have fond memories! A new chapter awaits us and our eyes are firmly focused on the work ahead.”
Vostok hasn’t revealed its future plans for this game (in terms of a sequel), or any other game for that matter. As the war rages on, the company’s outlook is certainly murky. But at the same time, they are encouraging their fans “to follow our social media pages to stay in the loop with all future news from Vostok Games.”
