An astute reader pointing out to us this morning that the official website for Outspark – one of the original Free-to-Play publishers – was no longer directing towards the main website. Upon visiting the site we could indeed confirm that players are no longer directed towards the publisher’s game hub. Instead they are now met with a welcome message from Gamigo, a normally EU focused publisher and the ones responsible for publishing Outspark’s Fiesta in the EU. According to the welcome message, Gamigo is now responsible for Fiesta in both the EU and US.
After digging around for more info we found a post on Facebook from Outspark’s PR with the following response:
“So now that’s it’s official I can tell you that Outspark did indeed have an exit on Friday, and Gamigo acquired our largest franchise, Fiesta Online. An amazing ending to one of the founders of the free-to-play MMO space.”
As of now, the only game moving over from Outspark is Fiesta. Gamigo reassured Fiesta players by letting them know that almost nothing will change. For US players, they will need to wait just a bit for the server transfer to take place and will only need to download a small patch on their end. Those who had Sparkcash will be happy to hear Gamigo has transferred the currency and made it available to use in all their other NA games.
No details were given on why Outspark had to close up shop.
