Another casualty from the shutdown of GameSparks online services has appeared and this time it’s Neon Exile. The self-proclaimed ‘persistent open world VR MMO’ launched in 2019 but the team is unable to transition the backend infrastructure from GameSparks to a contemporary service and will remove it from Steam at the end of the month.
Unfortunately due to factors beyond our control, the server technology we are using is no longer available for us to use in Neon Exile and since the game is so tightly integrated into this server technology we are not currently in a position to change the backend to a different provider. We have therefore taken the difficult decision to shut down the early access and sales of Neon Exile. The game will be removed from sale on September 30th 2022 and the servers will no longer operate.
If you own the game, you will be able to continue playing the single player training courses, but there will be no online access or multiplayer.
Thank you to everyone who provided feedback and enjoyed the early access phase of our game. We greatly appreciate all of your help and hope that you enjoyed this glimpse into the future of massively multiplayer VR experiences.
Hopefully at some point in the future we will be able to revive Neon Exile in some form.
Thank you again.Mythical City Games Announcement – September 23, 2022
I’ve added the date to the Watch List calendar and will have a page up on the site later. Thanks to HandMaskTar for submitting the game to the site.
