Dead Island: Epidemic Shutting Down with No Chance of Reanimation

Bad news for those who play Dead Island: Epidemic and don’t just stare at it in their Steam library wondering how it inexplicably got there, as Deep Silver announced today that they are closing it down. The servers will stay open until October 15, during which time substantial discounts will be ran.

Read Deep Silver’s full statement below:

“Dear players,

Ever since starting with the Closed Alpha, and all the way through the Closed Beta and Open Beta, we’ve received a great amount of useful criticism and encouraging feedback from our players. This has been invaluable for all the teams involved in developing the game.

Over the past weeks and months we’ve been evaluating how to proceed with Dead Island: Epidemic and looking towards the future for the game. We’re sad to announce today that we’ve come to the conclusion to cease further development.

We will be leaving the servers open until the end of October 15th (Pacific Time), during which time we’ll run a very large discount on all characters and boosts to give everyone a chance to spend any remaining currency on characters and items you may have wanted to try before, but never did.

We want to thank everyone for their support, their feedback, and their time playing Dead Island: Epidemic! The game would not have been the same without you.

Team Dead Island: Epidemic”
