The Culling 2 is Shutting Down, Refunds Being Given

The Culling 2 removed from sale after one week

"It's been a lot to take in". After listening to public feedback, Xaviant has an answer: pulling The Culling 2 from store shelves. It quickly gained some popularity on Steam, but lost its players base to bigger PC battle royale titles like "PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds". Instead, the studio plans on focusing its efforts on expanding the original game. The developer wants to recapture those early glory days.

It got to the point where the developers weren't happy with their relationship with the community, and the community wasn't happy with the state of the game. The rapid changes to the game's feel and melee focused combat soured its fans, causing its play count to fall from the highs of 12,000 to just over 100 by the time development ceased in March. "But we didn't see a path forward, so we turned it off and moved onto something else, and in retrospect, that was a mistake".

Van Veld said it's clear now "The Culling 2" is not a game fans asked for and it's not a worthy successor to the original. As far as we're concerned, The Culling 2 will go down in history as a game that gave up its creative spark in order to cash in on the battle royale hype despite it already having an established community with its original game. We weren't sure exactly what would happen to the studio, but last night, a plan of action was officially put in place.

Australian players banned in wake of basketball brawl in Manila
Head coach Vincent "Chot" Reyes was suspended for one game and fined for unsportsmanlike behavior, as was the national federation. The FIBA investigation found that the brawl wasn't sparked by racist comments from Australian players as had been reported.

The Culling 1 will be available in its "Day 1" form on the test servers starting this week, free for existing owners of the game.

This merging of this new Day One version and the now on sale version is still only taking place down the line, with Xaviant planning to detail their timeline further later this week.

The director of operations at Xaviant, Josh Van Veld, published a YouTube video to give "an update about [the] studio and our projects". I suppose this means microtransactions will be funding the development of the title, but I think fans of that first version will be happy to hear that the game they fell in love with will finally be available to a wider audience.
