The Darwin Project development has ended because the game wasn't popular it seems. The servers will remain operational until at least the end of the year, so you can continue playing it, but new features won't be added.
The game has been in Xbox Game Preview for a while now, and after going free to play, we haven't heard much about the title. Today, developer Scavengers Studio announced that Darwin Project is leaving early access today.
Many months ago, developer Scavengers Studio announced that Darwin Project was available on Steam Early Access and Xbox Game Preview. Soon afterwards, it was revealed that the game was going free-to-play on PC.
Darwin Project takes place in a post-apocalyptic environment in Canada. As civilization prepares for an upcoming ice age, a twisted new project emerges, half science experiment and half entertainment. It's now available on Xbox Game Preview.
Another Darwin Project open beta is coming this weekend. January's test saw over 80,000 people join the game’s first such event. The open beta begins on Friday, February 23, 2018 at 3 PM EST and ends on Monday, February 26 at 12 PM EST.
