Dead Island: Epidemic, the MOBA spin-off of Dead Island is closing down. The developers announced the news on Steam, saying that October 15 is when the servers will shut 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. This has been invaluable for all the teams involved in developing the game,” the update reads.

“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.”

From now through October 15, all of the game’s characters and boosts will be hugely discounted to allow players to spend their remaining in-game currency or try them out before it’s all over.
