You may remember us briefly speaking about Splash Damage’s upcoming shooter Dirty Bomb a time or two in the past. The class-based shooter reminded us of Splash Damage’s previous work including Brink and Wolfenstein. Dirty Bomb seemed to be moving along at a decent development clip and Splash Damage even began offering paid Closed Alpha access back in January.

Since then though, news regarding Dirty Bomb’s movements have been hush hush, with the official website still devoid of any real information. This is where Nexon comes in. Nexon has announced it will publish a Free-to-Play shooter called Extraction, developed by none other than Splash Damage.

A teaser site for Extraction is now live and while the site itself bears no resemblance to Dirty Bomb, the game highlights certainly do. Extraction seems to contain the same class driven system as Dirty Bomb, along with the same objective based gameplay modes. Even the story, which depicts the contaminated streets of London as ground zero for Extraction, is the same as Dirty Bomb.

There are still questions to be asked regarding this sudden change of name, but for now interested parties can sign up for update emails (and presumably beta details) by visiting the teaser site here.

    I was really excited for this game, but this is… disheartening? I mean… Nexon?
    And Extraction? What a boring title. Dirty Bomb was catchy. :(

      Why did it almost fail to see the light of day? Sauce? Not being an ass, if that’s the case, I am seriously interested to know what happened.

        Lack of finding a publisher? You’d be surprised how some games struggle and fail if it isn’t enticing enough and the potential market isn’t seen for it. That aside, nexon? Could no one else have picked this up? I don’t know if you know of nexon’s track record; if you don’t let me say it’s about as filthy as a $5 whore.

    wasn’t this the game that tried to sell pre alpha packages? or something as silly as ‘founders’ packs

      They explained it (at PAX) as there are no classes, but characters (champions). Each character will bring a unique set of skills/abilities to the team. (I.e. Support character has medkit and a defibrillator.

    Nexon? That means Pay-to-win? NOPE.
