Edge Case Games ends development of Fractured Space


Edge Case Games has announced that it will cease any further development of Fractured Space.

In a statement on Steam, [[https://steamcommunity.com/games/310380/announcements/detail/1696062196955193937]] the Guildford-based developer said: “After long deliberation, the very hard decision has been made for us as a studio to move on from further development of Fractured Space; this will enable us to look towards new projects. Whilst no additional content, updates or patches will be released for Fractured Space, we do plan to keep the servers online for the foreseeable future, so everyone can continue to play the game in its current state, with all its current modes.”

Edge Case Games will at least offer some compensation for those who splashed out on Platinum, Fractured Space’s in-game currency: “As a part of this update, all Platinum will be stripped from the game – any Platinum you currently have stored in your account will be converted into Credits at a rate of 550 Credits per 1 Platinum. All items that were previously sold for Platinum will now be available to purchase with Credits (such as Ship Skins, Bundles, and Credit Boosters). With this release, the Infection Episode Pack will be available to purchase for just 1 Credit. Steam DLC will no longer be purchasable from within the game, from the Steam Store, or from authorised third-party vendors. However, existing unredeemed keys will still be redeemable in Steam for the content advertised when the key was purchased.”

Edge Case Game’s follows hot on the heels of Splash Damage’s similar move to pull further development of Dirty Bomb; removing support from free-to-play games is in danger of becoming a trend. For further Fractured Space-related news, keep an eye on the game’s website.
