Project Spark, Microsoft's attempt to release tools for Xbox One and Windows 8/8.1 for users to create games, will shut down its servers after today. Users will need to download any content created with Project Spark now if they want to continue using it offline.
Microsoft previously announced its decision to sunset Project Spark in March, several months after it made all content created with the tools free to download. However, people who still have the tools installed on their Xbox One or PC can still play any content made for it offline. Microsoft outlined its plans back in March:
Project Spark was first announced at E3 in 2013, and started its open beta in March 2014. It officially launched in October 2014, but it never reached the audience that Microsoft hoped it would. A planned Xbox 360 version was cancelled.
