The current developer of Blacklight Retribution, Hardsuit Labs, has announced this week that the game would be shutdown this coming March. The PS4 version of the game will continue since there are no servers to host.
Zombie Studios once led the game, but those days are long past, and Hardsuit labs took over in 2015. The reason for the closure? Hardsuit is simply moving everyone to a new project. Considering that Blacklight’s population over the past few year or so has ranged in the… 10s, you can’t really blame them.
For anyone who wants to go on one last killing spree, the game’s store content will be free until the March closure. Check out the Steam community post for more information.
