Dust 514 To Shut Down At The End Of May

CCP have announced that the free-to-play PS3 shooter set in the EVE Online universe, Dust 514, will close at the end of May.

We are very proud of what we’ve learned and accomplished with DUST 514 on PlayStation 3 over the past three years and it is an honor to be a part of such a dedicated community. We consider DUST 514 one of the best free-to-play offerings on the platform, but the years have caught up with us. It is with a heavy heart that we inform you that DUST 514 will be shutting down on May 30th, 2016. We therefore will not be releasing the 1.3 update as we had planned.

Players will continue to be able to play for free on our servers until then, but all further PSN packs and purchases have been removed and disabled from the in-game marketplace and the PlayStation Store. Players with existing Aurum will be able to continue to purchase items from the in-game marketplace.

CCP continue to work on a new PC based first person shooter set in the same universe and will announce an update at EVE Fanfest on April 21st.

  1. It was a wasted opportunity in which they are right it was one of the best f2p games on the ps3-but there were so few.

    If its link with eve worked better and the gameplay, it might have held up. Sadly it didn’t and each f2p game on PS4 dwarfs it.

    • It was released a bit to late I think, really should have been a PS4 launch title.
