Microsoft have made the tough call on Friday and shut down their online creation game, Project Spark. The game is no longer available for sale and for those who already own it, the online services will shut down mid August, according to a post on the official Project Spark forums.
So if you want to keep playing your favourite community generated content , Thomas Gratz from Team Dakota advises you to do it now before you can no longer download any user made content. Online services are due to close on 12/08/2016.
If you bought the retail version of the game, you will receive a credit to your Microsoft account as compensation, the company states.
It’s not all bad news though, as we’re all aware when a game shuts its doors, there are generally casualties in the form of workers without work. But it seems like because development for Project Spark ceased last year all of the workers have since moved on to other projects.
