Rust Rewrite

Indie developer Facepunch sends an explanation of a recent update on the Rust website called "branching out," describing how owners of the Early Access zombie game now have the option of playing an experimental branch of the game as well as the standard version. Word is the game is being rewritten from the ground up for its final release, and the update explains how this all works. We also have the following that sums it up:

What you might now know is that the version people are mostly playing isn't the version that Facepunch are actively developing. The team realised that the codebase they were using was insufficient to match their ambitions, and made the decision to reboot development the game.

From scratch.

While it's not usual for games to reboot, Facepunch has done so while people are playing the game. This means that development has shifted over to Experimental. The goal is to eventually entice the players over from Original to Experimental, and make the full switch when the features are comparable and the players have started to migrate in sufficient. We won't be getting rid of the original version, but it will be retired as Experimental becomes the main branch on Steam. We've not got a timescale on that.
