Wayfinder was delisted on Steam on April 8th, 2024 and presumably within the month of April on PlayStation 4 & 5. Just a few months after its rocky launch on August 17th, 2023 publisher Digital Extremes announced layoffs within the company and that it would cease external projects including publishing Wayfinder. Developer Airship Syndicate confirmed in November of 2023 that they would be taking over as publisher and would continue working on the game. Wayfinder remained on sale until April 8th, 2024, the same day that Airship Syndicate made the following announcement:

We have reached an agreement with Digital Extremes to begin the transfer of Wayfinder to Airship in earnest. Until this moment, Digital Extremes has remained the publisher of record on Steam and PlayStation. We now begin the process of transferring those responsibilities to Airship.

We know Wayfinder had a rocky launch, but we still believe in the game and the world we created.

When we founded Airship it was to create great games in compelling worlds, with memorable characters and adventures. With those core principles in mind, we’ve spent the last several months working behind the scenes, challenging some of the core ideas in Wayfinder and creating an experience that remains consistent with our standards and beliefs. We did this while keeping in mind that we want to respect our founders and excite new players – all while staying feasible as a business model for us as a new independent publisher. We plan to share these changes soon, but we aren’t quite ready.

Due to these changes, we’ve turned off new sales of the game for the time being. Those who have purchased Wayfinder can still access and play as normal with no interruptions.

Airship is committed to keeping Wayfinder active and vibrant. There will be major changes, and major improvements, but we have no plans for it to disappear like so many online-only games we’ve all played and loved. We think Wayfinder can be something special, and be around to play forever.

Thank you so much for your support. Stay tuned to our social channels for more information in the next 4-6 weeks.

Steam Announcement – April 08, 2024

True to their word, the next announcement would come on May 15th, 2024 when Airship Syndicate would reveal a huge change to Wayfinder and when it would be returning to sale on Steam and on consoles. Highlights from the full announcement stated:

Wayfinder will be removing all online requirements and will be a single-player game with optional 3-player co-op. No queues, no login, no accounts. You can choose to play solo on your Steam Deck while on the go or engage in peer-to-peer co-op with friends from your home PC. We realize this is a big shift, but a necessary one to guarantee that the game is around forever. This also means that all progress will not be carried forward due to saves being local and not on a server. This major change will be the basis for what we’re calling Wayfinder’s Echoes Update.

Removing the online requirement wasn’t our only major change. The industry has also shifted in recent years. With more and more games coming out, they’re all fighting for player’s time and attention. Players have more to play than ever, and they’re being asked to log into multiple games to check their daily quests, look at a store rotation, and be drip-fed content. Players today are more apt to outright purchase a game they know is full of content and also respectful of their time. In the Echoes Update, we’ll be charging one price—$24.99 USD during Early Access (increasing upon full release). No in-game microtransactions or in-game purchases, just one price. Founders who have already purchased the game will have access, and all the exclusive items included in each pack. Our Founder’s Packs will not be going back on sale. For anyone that supported us by purchasing in-game Runesilver, we’ve converted that Runesilver into a new in-game currency used to acquire exclusive cosmetics.

While we have lots more to share on these changes in the coming weeks, we have always felt that actions speak louder than words. Therefore, we’ll be soft launching Wayfinder Echoes’ changes on May 31st. From that point forward, all online requirements tied to Steam, including all player data, will be removed, and the game will be available for anyone that currently owns any version of Wayfinder on Steam. Wayfinder will once again be available for purchase on Steam in Early Access on June 11th. These changes will come to PlayStation 5 later in the year, and we’ll keep players updated once we have a concrete timeline. PlayStation 4 support will be discontinued, with all PS4 versions being upgraded to PS5 at no additional cost. In the meantime, PlayStation 4 and 5 players can continue to access the game as normal. Relaunching in Early Access on a single platform also allows us to be agile and make changes at a faster pace than before. We plan to leave Early Access later in 2024, but during that time, we’ll be adding gameplay refinements based on feedback, a new Wayfinder, a new location to explore, new expanded housing, and more. We’re also formally announcing that Wayfinder will be coming to Xbox Series X|S during Early Access, and we’ll provide an update on timing later in the year.

Steam Store Announcement – May 15, 2024

Although the release date of the PlayStation 5 version is unknown as of this writing, Airship Syndicate confirmed that the PlayStation 4 version will be discontinued on the day of its launch. This leaves a small window of several months for current owners of the PlayStation 4 version to continue playing before it is permanently shut down and replaced by the dedicated PlayStation 5 release.
