Battle royale games are becoming increasingly popular, and with the success of titles like Fortnite and PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, the genre is thriving. One such game that was revealed during Microsoft's E3 2017 press conference was Darwin Project.
Darwin Project never really caught on and it looks like this has impacted the studio severely. The team said the following on its website.
We wish the team the best and hopefully, it'll work out for everyone in the long run. Did you play Darwin Project? Let us know.

In that case will we get a refund if we bought a digital copy while it was in pre release
If you hope for a refund you really didn't get the point of pre release sale... This is for a studio to generate revenue when they don't have enough to keep the studio running until full release.. If it doesn't you lost your money and they'll probably have to do cutbacks...
Too bad as it was a blast to play in the beginning and the community was great. It quickly turned into diabolically try-hard ridiculousness and the developer changed the game for the worse for it's full release.
Got into the beta back then, but was unlucky and didn't get to actually play. Still, it makes me sad to see a game fail. The industry is pretty unforgiving, and it must be really hard to have to fight for the attention and time of your player base. Against juggernaut games that can do it more safely, too much.
