Trion Worlds announces
they are shutting down operation of Atlas Reactor
a reaction to their conclusion that the free-to-play sci-fi MOBA is no longer
able to support itself (thanks
). The game will continue until June 28th (subject to
change), and they are no longer offering purchases, while adding new way to
acquire items that used to require real-money purchases:
It’s with a heavy heart that we announce today that the Atlas Reactor servers
will be shutting down. This is not a decision that we have taken lightly, but we
have come to the conclusion that the game can no longer sustain itself.
Mervin Lee Kwai, Vice President of Development at gamigo and a former Executive
Producer: “Atlas Reactor was a truly innovative game built by a passionate group
of highly skilled developers. I was lucky enough to watch our team breathe life
into the world of Atlas on a daily basis. They broke the mold of same-y games,
and a dedicated community rallied around the title. Despite the support of this
great group of fans, Atlas Reactor never grew big enough to fund its continued
development. It’s a shame to see this chapter come to a close, but perhaps we’ll
have a chance to revisit the innovative spirit of Atlas in the future.”
Starting today (04/17/2019) all purchasing has been shut off, and we have added
new ways to acquire products that were previously for real money purchase.
Additionally, we have turned the XP, Flux, and ISO rates up dramatically.
Our current plans are to run the servers until June 28th 2019, this is subject
to change and we will announce here if it changes.
For all player who have logged into Atlas at least once between 01/01/2018 –
04/16/2019, we have a small parting gift for you. More information will be sent
to the email address that you used to register your Atlas account.
To the players, both past and present,
Thank you for spending your time in Atlas with us.
