Slant Six Games shuts down Galactic Reign.
It’s been announced that a Windows Store game titled Galactic Reign will be removed from sale and the servers will be completely shut down by the end of this year.
This news makes one fact clear; Whatever is going on at Slant Six Games (the developer of such games as Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City and SOCOM), it isn’t good. In addition to the news of this game being completely shut down, some may recall that in April, the company went through a round of “temporary layoffs”‘.
The official announcement (brought to our attention by Eurogamer) was posted on the Xbox forum and read as follows:
“Today we are announcing that Galactic Reign will no longer be available for download from the Windows Store after August 15thand of the permanent shut down of Galactic Reign and its servers effective December 31, 2013. The forums will remain available until the end of the year, so that players can still communicate and exchange contacts. We will also continue support the Facebook and Twitter channels from now until server closure.
We are proud of the game we created and are thankful to our passionate community. We hope you have gotten many hours of enjoyment out Galactic Reign and will continue to do so until the end of this year. “
Will the company manage to pull through, or could this signify the end of Slant Six Games?
