Wildstar and Developer Carbine Closing

MMOG Wildstar is shutting down as its developer Carbine Studios also prepares to close its doors, reports Kotaku (thanks Kxmode). This looks like it originated as their report of a rumor, but it contains a statement from NCSOFT confirming the news. Oddly, there is no mention of this on the NCSOFT Website or the WildStar Website, and, disturbingly, the most recent tweet from Wildstar came less than 48 hours ago to promote their in-game item shop. Here's the statement:

“Today, we are closing Carbine Studios and will begin the process of winding WildStar down to ultimately shutter the game,” NCSoft said in a statement. “WildStar players who have spent money within the game will be refunded purchases from July 1, 2018 until the payment system is shut off. We are also in the process of identifying the teams that will be doing the work to bring WildStar to a close. These decisions are very difficult to make and we are in the midst of shifting as many of our teammates as possible into other roles within the organization.”
