Microsoft and Developer Team Dakota are plugging the plug on Project Spark. The game-making tool for Xbox One and Windows PC. Project Spark will no longer exist on the Xbox or Windows Store after May 13. So what about the online portion you ask? Well that content will be unavailable after Aug. 12, according to an update posted to the Project Spark forums.
Here what Community Manager Thomas Gratz had to say about the statement:
“This was an extremely difficult decision for our team that we do not take lightly, When Project Spark transitioned away from active development last fall, many of our team members moved to other projects within Microsoft Studios. While this means there have been no layoffs at Microsoft, it also means it’s simply no longer feasible to continue the behind-the-scenes work involved with keeping Project Spark up and running with meaningful updates and bug fixes, so we have come to this hard decision.”
Microsoft says it will offer kickback that can be used in the Xbox or Windows Store to players who purchased a retail copy of Project Spark.
