Earlier this month, NCSoft announced that Carbine will be shutting down. For those who aren’t familiar, Carbine is the developer behind MMORPG WildStar, and was put together by former Blizzard employees. The shutting down of Carbine also meant that this marked the end of WildStar, but we did not have a date until now.
In a post on WildStar’s website, the developers have confirmed that the game will be shutting down for good come November 28, 2018. Gamers can also expect to be refunded their purchases that were made after the 1st of July, although with the game shutting down in the next couple of months, it probably doesn’t make sense for you to invest anymore into it.
To help wrap things up and allow players to experience the game in all of its glory one last time, Carbine announced that they will be “increasing the rotational speed of the planet Nexus (not really) to fast forward “ the time in the game so that players will be able to take part and enjoy some of the seasonal in-game events.
The developers also add, “We are truly grateful for the vibrant community that grew around WildStar, and for all of your support throughout the life of this game. Our hope is that in these last couple months we can all celebrate the great adventures you’ve had on Planet Nexus—and have some fun along the way.”
“Again, a most heartfelt thank you goes out from all of us to you for sharing this wild, intergalactic ride with us, and to helping make WildStar an experience that truly could not have been possible without you. Thank you.”
