Insomniac Games Announces Closure of Outernauts on iOS and Android

on December 12, 2015 2:33 PM

Insomniac Games, best known for the Ratchet and Clank series, has begun the shutdown of its iOS and Android game Outernauts. In-app purchases have already been removed from the game, and the drop rate for Star Gems has been increased, the form of currency for the in-game storefront.

On February 1, 2016 the game will be removed from the app store and all servers supporting the game will be shut down, removing any method of playing the game. Outernauts began on Facebook in 2012 and grew from there onto mobile devices. While Insomniac appreciates the fan base it has gathered, sadly the player count does not justify server costs and it will be closed down.

Your quest for galactic domination begins here! Collect, breed, and train hundreds of exotic, evolving beasts. Then fight your foes in strategic, action-skill based battles in a sprawling campaign or online against your friends and the rest of the known universe. Suit up Outernaut!
