Update: The Last One
It is with a heavy heart that we share this news regarding Space Punks. Flying Wild Hog and Jagex regretfully announce the discontinuation of support for Space Punks. This decision follows careful consideration of market conditions and our goals, and while tough, it was deemed necessary.
Our mission is to craft games that stay close to gamers' hearts for years. We would like to express our deep gratitude to all of you who joined us on this journey, from early access to Open Beta. Your feedback has been invaluable.
A special thank you to the Space Punks Team - for your dedication, hard work and energy.
Live services for Space Punks will conclude on November 6th, 2023 at 14:00 UTC. The in-game store and Epic storefront access will cease starting September 5th, 2023.
All players that have made purchases are eligible for a refund. For details on service shutdown and refunds, please see the FAQ below.
We extend heartfelt gratitude to our incredible community of players.
Farewell, Pathfinders, we look forward to our next adventure.
Space Punks was removed from sale on Tuesday 5th September 2023 and additional purchases were no longer available.
The game will remain playable until Monday 6th November at 14:00 UTC, at which point, the servers will be turned off and the game will no longer be playable.
This decision has not been taken lightly, but when considering market conditions and player engagement, this was a necessary decision.
Will there be any additional updates?
Update 8: The Pretty One was the last update Space Punks will receive.
Will there be events before the servers go offline?
We won't be hosting farewell events leading up to the shutdown. The decision to move forward without additional events was not made lightly, and we appreciate your understanding.
What will happen to my account?
Accounts will remain active until 6th November 2023 at 14:00 UTC, giving you time to bid farewell and connect with friends.
What will happen to the Reddit and Space Punks social media channels?
The decision to close the Reddit and Space Punks Social Media channels on 6th November is part of the sunsetting process.
I've purchased a Founder's Pack. Will I receive a refund?
Players who have purchased items will receive a refund via Epic from 5th October onwards. The refund process may take a few weeks to complete.
Epic will attempt to refund any funds to the payment method used to make the purchase. However, in the event that your previous payment method is no longer valid - or another issue prevents a refund - the funds will be added back to your Epic Game Store wallet instead.
Please contact Epic support directly for assistance if you do not receive a refund by 5th November or require further support.
What will happen to my in-game items?
As the sunsetting date approaches, please note that in-game items will remain accessible until November 6th, 2023 at 14:00 UTC. We hope you enjoy your remaining time within the Space Punks universe and make the most of your items before the closure.
When did the shop close down?
In preparation for the sunsetting process, Space Punks was removed from the store on September 5th, 2023.
Will the Support Centre remain live?
Our Support Centre will be accessible until 6th November. We'll then have a light Knowledge Base for players needing information about receiving a refund.
A contact route will also remain open for those who may require further support.
We wanted to thank the incredible Space Punks community who have joined us on our journey; we had a blast in space together.
Fame and fortune, Pathfinder - always.
