The servers of free-to-play shooter Blacklight: Retribution are being shut down for good next month, developer Hardsuit Labs has announced.

According to the developer, the decision to shut the game down after seven years due to the team having other “very interesting projects” in the works that now “require the full focus of the development teams and leadership.”

“The reality is Hardsuit Labs has been engaged for some time now in some very interesting projects that require the full focus of the development teams and leadership,” the developer wrote in a Reddit post. “The studio capacity and resources are and have been entirely engaged with these projects and will be for the foreseeable future. As such, we officially will no longer be patching, updating, or doing technical support for Blacklight Retribution. Account migration will officially shut down as of today, as will the official support site.”

On March 11th, the game’s PC servers will be officially shut down. However, until then, all items in the PC store are now available to all players for free.

Hardsuit concluded by confirming that this will only affect the PC version of the game, as the PlayStation 4 version of the shooter has no dedicated servers.
