Project Xandata on Steam shuts down May 31st

Project Xandata on Steam shuts down May 31st

While studio Secret 6 announced that they were shutting down Project Xandata last November, there’s still time to take a look at the free-to-play 3v3 arena shooter before it goes offline on May 31st. The team’s original announcement from November 2nd explains further:

I know, it’s a terrible day for rain, isn’t it? I’m sure you’ve seen the announcement. If you haven’t, then to put it simply, Project Xandata will be ceasing active development as of today. While you can still hop in and play the game until May of 2023, no more new updates and events will be coming.

Just as Halloween has ended, fret not as we have one last treat for you. We’ll be implementing a new in-game currency that you can use to purchase store items. This new currency, called Dark Shards, can be gained simply by playing the game and completing matches, with wins giving you more shards. You can check out more ways to get these shards down below.

We’ve had things prepared for another season, but now that we’re reaching the end of the line, we want to make sure that you get a chance to enjoy everything we’ve put our heart and soul into making, from the flashiest weapon and armor skins to the best emotes and intros to style on your enemies. Up until the very end, we’ll make sure that you’ve got the style to match your skills without having to spend.

Again, for all these years you’ve spent with us, we thank you wholeheartedly. No words can express the amount of gratitude we have for you for sticking with us through thick and thin. All the lessons we’ve learned and trials we’ve faced and overcome, we wouldn’t have it any other way with any other community.

It has been our honor that you joined us in these proving grounds, and hope that you will join us in the next, wherever it may be. Once again, this has been everyone’s favorite, and I hope forever will be your favorite, Alliance of Nations spokesperson Millie, signing out!

Secret 6 Announcement – November 2nd, 2022

An additional post on the game’s homepage from the same day provides even more details including confirmation that  May 31st will be the game’s final day in operation. It also explains in more detail about the studio’s experience with Xandata and their plans for the future. Thanks again to Serrated-banner9 for submitting the news. I’ve added the date to the Watch List calendar and we’ll have a page up on the site later.
