It is develop into so frequent to see on-line video games switched off solely that we truly compiled a listing of all the massive video games that shut down final yr. It generally feels dangerous to get too connected to any sort of on-line multiplayer game lately; as quickly as a line on an earnings graph dips too low, the servers get unplugged.

However Killer Intuition is bucking that pattern (through Time Extension). The combating game reboot that initially hit PC seven years in the past has responded to points with its legacy server infrastructure by, get this, migrating to new ones! A top quality of life update for the game launched final week that begins the method of moving Killer Intuition over to a brand new server backend.

“Over the past 5 years,” learn the update, “it has develop into more difficult to take care of points that crop up on account of KI’s reliance on legacy companies”. So the game’s makers have “began migrating KI’s legacy companies to PlayFab companies, a course of which is able to occur over the subsequent a number of months”.

If you happen to’re nonetheless a Killer Intuition stalwart, you may run into load occasions lasting “40-60 seconds, however doubtlessly minutes relying in your connection velocity,” and a warning that the game is “Refreshing DLC Timeout” subsequent time you play, however in any other case the game needs to be the identical because it ever was. The standard of life update has additionally added a few PC-specific fixes: each gamers will not lose factors after considered one of them leaves Ranked mode on Steam, and all characters ought to now be unlocked for gamers on Game Go.

When you think about that this model of Killer Intuition truly launched a full 10 years in the past—solely the PC model got here out in 2016—and this server shift applies to all platforms, it is truthfully fairly heartening (okay, they’ve Microsoft cash, however nonetheless). I imply, perhaps it should not be spectacular {that a} game is not merely shutting its doorways ceaselessly as quickly because it reaches a sure age, however these are the occasions we dwell in. Now if solely everybody else might do the identical.
