Delisting

On May 11th, 2018 Ready At Dawn updated the official Deformers site to announce that the game was “no longer financially viable” and that it would be removed from sale immediately with its online multiplayer servers shut down on August 9th, 2018. The full announcement follows:

After much deliberation, Ready At Dawn has made the difficult decision to shut down Deformers servers in its Western and European markets on August 9th, 2018. All development on the Western/European version of Deformers will cease effective immediately, and as part of this transition, all physical and digital purchases of Deformers and real-money Strand Pack purchasing will be disabled.

Beginning today, all Workshop items will be available for free so that everyone has the chance to unlock all Forms and Styles for continued use in offline play. We will also be automatically unlocking all Forms and Styles for all accounts prior to the server shutdown.

To our Deformers Community,
Thank you for supporting us in pursuing our passion project. It isn’t often that a team gets that opportunity, and in the process also has the fortune to meet such wonderful and passionate players to join us on our journey. You’ve shared in our challenges and encouraged us along the way with your inspiring messages, artwork,and wonderful videos. We couldn’t have come this far without you. As painful as it was, we had to make a very difficult, but necessary, decision when it became clear that Deformers was no longer financially viable in the West and in Europe. This decision will allow us to keep providing the best play experience as possible for our other games and also enable us to continue to bring you new and exciting games in the future.

We thank you again for your continued support, and we encourage everyone to play and have fun with the game in the time remaining.

Thank You,

The Deformers Team

The game and its real-money “Strand Packs” were promptly removed from sale on Xbox One but as of May 13th, 2018 they remained available to buy on Steam, and on PlayStation 4 in Europe and North America. The game remains available on physical media for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and as of May 13th  Amazon still offered a download code for the Xbox One version.
