H1Z1 survival game Just Survive is being shut down in October, developer Daybreak Games has announced.

The servers will be officially taken offline on Wednesday, October 24th at 11 a.m. PT. The game is no longer available to purchase on Steam and all in-game purchases have been disabled. Players can still access any purchased items until the servers are taken offline.

“The excitement of the game’s promise was palpable and its loyal community is still full of ideas for its future,” Daybreak Games said in a statement. “Unfortunately, we are no longer in a position to fulfill its greatness and the current population of the game makes it untenable to maintain.”

“Thank you for taking the time to play the game, to help test it when we opened the Test servers to the public, and for all of the suggestions and feedback throughout Early Access,” the developer added. “We truly appreciate everyone’s commitment and your contributions throughout the development process. Our promise is to do better and learn from every experience along the way.”

Players can check if they are eligible for a refund by heading over to the Steam Refunds page.

The game originally launched via Steam Early Access in 2015 as H1Z1, but was split off into two projects in 2016: H1Z1: Just Survive and H1Z1: King of the Kill. H1Z1: Just Survive was later renamed to Just Survive.
