Today's the day that Darwin Project finally shuts (some of) its doors. As we learned back in November, the game would be partially closing down on Jan. 5, 2021 -- and, well, that's today.

As that Tweet from Scavengers Studios indicates, you can still play the game via its two remaining servers -- one located in Frankfurt, Germany, and another in Virginia in the U.S. -- but development has ceased and it will be something of a "Wild West" for players, with no bug fixes or rules regarding toxicity or other disciplinary matters. On the bright side, you can play on those aforementioned servers regardless of your location, with no IP blocks.

There's still a non-trivial number of players in the game, peaking at around 100 on Steam in the late afternoon, so you might be able to find a match. Scavengers Studio's next project, the curious low-key console game Season, isn't likely to draw in the same crowd as Darwin Project, but maybe it will be more successful and help the developer find its footing as it explores future projects.
