Blacklight: Retribution Closing in March

A post on Steam announces official support for Blacklight: Retribution for Windows is ending on March 11th, when the PC servers for the free-to-play first-person shooter will shut down (thanks Rock Paper Shotgun). Developer Zombie Studios closed their doors four years ago, but publisher Hardsuit Labs has continued to operate it since then. Now they explain some "very interesting projects" they have in the works require their "full focus." In the meantime, all the premium items in the game will be offered for free. Here are the details:

All good things must come to an end, and so it is with Blacklight: Retribution.

Thank you for so much for your loyal support, and love over the years. From the initial PC Closed Beta in November 2011 to today, it has been a great 7+ years. The joy that we got out of Blacklight: Retribution is a testament to you the fans; your loyalty, dedication, support, and ultimate willingness to try our fun, quirky FPS.

Why is this happening? The reality is Hardsuit Labs has been engaged for some time now in some very interesting projects that require the full focus of the development teams and leadership. The studio capacity and resources are and have been entirely engaged with these projects and will be for the foreseeable future. As such, we officially will no longer be patching, updating, or doing technical support for Blacklight Retribution. Account migration will officially shut down as of today, as will the official support site.

Starting today, all items in the PC store will be made free, and we hope that you continue to enjoy the game and items up until the PC servers are shut down on March 11th, 2019. The PS4 version of Blacklight Retribution will continue to operate as-is since there are no game servers being hosted for it.
