Splash Damage is ending development on its free-to-play shooter Dirty Bomb
Splash Damage has announced that it will no longer be actively developing or updating its free-to-play multiplayer shooter Dirty Bomb, saying that it “can’t financially justify continuing to work on the game”.
Dirty Bomb unfolds in London following a string of terrorist attacks and is described as a “fast-paced team game” that “takes first person shooters back to their purest roots”. It launched its open beta on Steam in 2015, and finally saw its version 1.0 release in August this year.
In a statement posted on the official Dirty Bomb website, Splash Damage explained that, “It has been a challenging couple of months full of sensitive decisions that we had to make regarding the future of Dirty Bomb. It’s with a heavy heart that, after a bug fix build ships in the upcoming weeks, we will be ending live development and updates on Dirty Bomb.”
