Developer and publisher CCP announced on July 1st, 2022 that three of their older EVE-adjacent titles, along with Sparc, had been removed from sale the same day and that online services would be shut down on August 5th, 2022. The four titles include EVE: Valkyrie – Warzone, EVE: Gunjack, Gunjack 2: End of Shift, and Sparc, each of whose homepage received a similarly worded announcement:
vSports fans – all good things come to an end, even to plasma-clad champion athletes. Today, we have begun the process of discontinuing support for Sparc to focus CCP Games’ efforts and resources on new developments in our evolving portfolio of EVE Universe titles.
We are extremely proud of what we accomplished with Sparc and want to extend our deep appreciation to all our players for their support throughout the game’s lifecycle. It is an honor to have been a part of such a dedicated community.
For the time being, you won’t see any effect if you own a copy of the game. The game will continue to be playable with our servers remaining active until date August 5th 2022.
On August 5th 2022, Sparc’s servers will be turned off, social media profiles will be closed, and this website will go offline. Once servers are deactivated, Sparc will no longer be playable.
Thank you for being a part of Sparc. We remain open to exploring future opportunities in the VR space, but for now, we look forward to the next chapter of the EVE Universe. We hope you’ll be a part of it and continue the journey with us.Sparc Announcement
In all cases the explanation for the delistings was the same; refocusing time, money, and resources on new and existing projects in the EVE universe.
