Despicable Me: Minion Rush

Both the Windows Phone and Windows 8.1 versions of the popular movie-based mobile game Despicable Me: Minion Rush will no longer receive any updates, according to an announcement that was posted this morning on the game's Facebook page.

The endless runner game from publisher Gameloft was first launched for both platforms in December 2013. Here is today's Facebook announcement in full:

Despite the incredible year we've had together with Despicable Me: Minion Rush it is with a heavy heart that we must announce the discontinuation of updates in the Windows 8 and Windows Phone versions of the game.

To celebrate our partnership this past year, we want to reward our Windows users with a special gift that can be obtained in the game.

Be assured that the game itself will remain available and playable on Windows.

Thank you, The Minion Rush Development Team
