A Farewell To Arms - Nosgoth’s Final Days Are Upon Us
Denizens of Nosgoth,

It has been more than two and a half years since we partnered with the wonderfully mad men and women at Psyonix to embark upon a rather ambitious adventure. Our goal was to bring the world of Nosgoth to life in a new and challenging manner; a manner which allowed players to wage asymmetric warfare against each other as both human and vampire-kind.

A massive amount of work has gone into making Nosgoth a reality, and continually bringing new developments to the game. Our own teams, as well as the great guys at Psyonix, have dedicated a huge portion of themselves to making Nosgoth bigger and better over the years. Not only that, but dedicated community members provided a great deal of feedback that has been tremendously beneficial to the game. We are eternally grateful. Thank you one and all.

The above only makes today’s announcement that much more difficult.

It is with a heavy heart and an immense sense of sadness that we must announce the end of Nosgoth’s development. Servers will continue to run until 31st May 2016, during which time you will be able to play the game as normal. After that date, Nosgoth will be taken offline for the last time.

This was not an easy decision to come to. It has been a pleasure to build this game with your help, but ultimately its audience hasn’t grown enough to sustain ongoing operations.

On behalf of the entire Nosgoth team we want to thank you all for your feedback, support and dedication to the game throughout Nosgoth’s life.

Even Loadout has running servers and this game is as good as dead.

And you shut down the servers with a growing playerbase? That's just sad.

So... now Psyonix can get rich with their racing game and Square can make a real LoK. I just hope they'll learn the lesson with thir failures with Dead Sun and Nosgoth. Anyways, good luck. I'll keep an eye out for Kain&co.
I won't.

First game I actually spent money on that was in early access. The trailer got my attention, and I thought wow, this game is really sweet. I bought the Immortal pack founder, luckily it was 50% off, and I still feel like I haven't got my money's worth.

Overall the gameplay was nice. What really turned me off from the game was the matchmaking. Everything else could've been fine tuned but the matchmaking was what really killed it for me. Even when it was in early access, was really hard to find a match most of the time, then was even worse when it turned into open beta, which you would think would be the opposite, but even took longer. I usually end up fighting the same people over and over again. Which really wasn't the bad thing. Bad thing was losing over and over again to the same people. I wasn't that great, but I wasn't that bad either. After match is over wait a bit before another match starts.

Not suprised how it turned out at the end, but completely abandoning it isn't the best idea. Especially if they just get someone to fix the matchmaking. I know for a fact that would make me come back and play it more often.
