Blacklight: Retribution PC servers will go offline in March

PC servers for free-to-play FPS Blacklight: Retribution will be taken offline in March.

Hardsuit Labs has announced the server closure of Blacklight: Retribution, which means the PC game will be taken offline March 11.

The PS4 version of Blacklight Retribution will continue to operate as-is since there aren't any hosted servers.

"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," reads the notice on Steam.

"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."

Starting today, all items in the PC store will be made free. If you want to try the game before it's pulled, it is free on Steam, and not just F2P as RPS notes.

Zombie Studios was the original developer of the title before it was handed over after its closure.
