Deep Silver has announced that its free-to-play MOBA set in the Dead Island universe, Dead Island: Epidemic, is closing down.

“Ever since starting with the Closed Alpha, and all the way through the Closed Beta and Open Beta, we?ve received a great amount of useful criticism and encouraging feedback from our players,” the developer wrote in a Steam update. “This has been invaluable for all the teams involved in developing the game.

“Over the past weeks and months we?ve been evaluating how to proceed with Dead Island: Epidemic and looking towards the future for the game. We?re sad to announce today that we?ve come to the conclusion to cease further development.”

The game’s servers will remain open until October 15th, 2015. From now until then, Deep Silver will be running a very large discount on all characters and boosts.
