Remember The Tomorrow Children? I don’t blame you if you don’t.
Announced at Gamescom 2014 during Sony’s presser, The Tomorrow Children garnered considerable attention and anticipation. Quite simply: it looked very neat. However, after that initial announcement the game largely went silent before, kinda out-of-nowhere, releasing in October 2016 to a very little buzz and middling review scores.
Q-Games, Minecraft-esque Soviet Union-themed post-apocalyptic MMO town-building tower-defense sandbox game launched and was basically never heard of again. And now it’s end is on the horizon.
Today, Sony Interactive Entertainment has announced that on September 28th the game will be pulled from the PlayStation Store and the Founders Pack and Freeman Dollars will no longer be available for purchase.
As you have to be online to play The Tomorrow Children, it will be shutting down completely on November 1, 2017. This means that any DLC will also be unplayable, and virtual currencies will be useless.
Sony hasn’t provided an official explanation for why it’s pulling the plug on The Tomorrow Children — but it’s quite obvious why: no one is playing it. That being said, if you’ve ever been interested in checking it out you will want to play it soon before its gone. A shame, because at one point, The Tomorrow Children was among my most anticipated games.
