I kinda saw this coming or the game would just close down, its bad enough multiplayer only games have a short shelf life, but VR only multiplayer games die even quicker…. so its good to see they are at least expanding the game to include non-vr users
The VR edition of the game may not be selling well enough to warrant more investment into a non-VR version. IMO if all was well there would be no reason to not release it especially since it was already in beta….. shame.
We will be bringing the Space Junkies non-VR open beta to a close on Wednesday August 28th at 9am UTC.
While this is the end of our journey in terms of development of the game, the team is proud to have achieved what we set out to do: create a fun and fast-paced competitive FPS in VR.
The game servers will remain open and accessible to players who purchased the VR version of Space Junkies so that Spacers can continue to take on each other in the many community tournaments we’ve seen since launch.
The current plan, however, is to not release the non-VR version of the game.
