Splash Damage's Dirty Bomb reemerges as Extraction, Nexon will publish
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.
