It made no sense then, it makes no sense today. Hopefully Legion or whatever it's going to be called will do a lot better.

    Its failure wasn't due to the PS3.
    It was actually incredibly popular for what it was, beating quite a few PC F2P game averages for a while. Probably because the PS3 didn't have many F2P alternatives compared to the saturated PC market.

    Problem is, it wasn't much. The game was horribly mismanaged, and that would be true regardless of platform. The dev leads had no place being where they were. Hopefully this time around CCP Rouge and CCP Rattati will set things straight.

    Respectfully, Cat Merc, the problem was mostly the PS3 but, prior to the wedding Dust's mismanagement did complicate its development.

    But let's be honest, the hardware is the problem. It's not the console as a market that's the problem - it was specifically the PS3 and its very limited capacity (and end of lifecycle support by Sony). The game could never do what they wanted and it took Rattati's very adept creativity to make it live on, flourish a bit and stay 'profitable'.

    But, now...as was foretold...from Dust we came and to dust we shall return. And sleep again...for a time...

    But New Eden should not feel so safe. O' capsuleers, so smug and snug inside your precious pods encased in violent shells. For we shall wake. And when we do we will be closer to you than ever before. No longer held safe, at 'arm's length' inside these gravity wells - no.

    When we wake it will be the Capsuleers that ferry the Clones amongst the stars. Drey animals. Beasts of Burden. A fitting turn.

    Good Nite Dust514,

    Until the Dawn

    I don't think you understand just how deeply the mismanagement goes.

    CCP Rattati straight up said this studio was an absolute wreck.

    I know this is going to sound like a stupid question but....

    What are we expecting to see Lore wise, Quite a bit of effort was put into making dust bunnies part of the lore.
    So how are they going to write them off. Will they play it into the jamyl / Other arc and have the other inside them too, thus being part of the reason for the drifter incursions as an attempt to destroy them, ending up successful ?

    I don't see it just being left with no explanation.

    They could very well just write it off.
    New DUST was what was happening in (lore) reality all along.

    Reading comprehension is lacking here. There is nothing that says dust is being ported. What it actually says is that DUST 514 is shutting down May 30 of this year. It is not being ported.

    The post also says CCP Shanghai has been working on a new FPS set in New Eden that is planned for the PC. And maybe later they will port that to PS4.

    I am amused by this post.

    I always knew it would be PC exclusive.

    I guess it's time for all the "PC MASTER RACE" spammers to go **** on the current community again. GG.

    Twitch during FF14 was unbearable.

    I really do hope people appreciate the community that was on consoles. It was dedicated and passionate, no less than the EVE community. With this move many of them will sadly be left behind, but please I do hope you all understand how vital their existence was for us to get to this moment.

    DUST 514 didn't fail just because it was on PS3, contrary to popular belief. The studio was completely mismanaged. This means that even if the game was to release on PC, it would be a disaster in the first place. Thanks to the PS3 version however, you can be assured that the team behind it knows what they're doing, and understand the mistakes of the past.


    Trust in our lords and saviors CCP Rattati and CCP Rouge.

    Project Legion kinda went silent and died off after FF2014, and the future of the game was left shrouded in mystery.

    However, a dev post just confirmed the status of the project: https://forums.dust514.com/default.aspx?g=posts&m=3092850#post3092850

    Dear DUST 514 Community,

    CCP’s development team in Shanghai has been working on a prototype for a first-person shooter for PC with the goal of building a great FPS set in our sci-fi universe of New Eden (the universe in which EVE Online, DUST 514, EVE: Valkyrie, and Gunjack are set). Their experience is being utilized to build a new game from scratch using Unreal Engine 4 while harnessing all our learnings from DUST 514. This is in many ways an evolution of Project Legion, the concept we announced at EVE Fanfest 2014, but without the limitations of technical debt and development paths we quickly discovered in that effort that could never serve as a future-proof technology base for a full production game. This new project is still in an early phase of production, and we feel like we’re on the right track and plan to give an update at EVE Fanfest on April 21st as a part of the free livestream of the event. Since this new game will be different from DUST 514 (although keeping many of its great parts), we will provide tiered recognition rewards to our loyal DUST customers, details to be announced.

    We are very proud of what we’ve learned and accomplished with DUST 514 on PlayStation 3 over the past three years and it is an honor to be a part of such a dedicated community. We consider DUST 514 one of the best free-to-play offerings on the platform, but the years have caught up with us. It is with a heavy heart that we inform you that DUST 514 will be shutting down on May 30th, 2016. We therefore will not be releasing the 1.3 update as we had planned. Players will continue to be able to play for free on our servers until then, but all further PSN packs and purchases have been removed and disabled from the in-game marketplace and the PlayStation Store. Players with existing Aurum will be able to continue to purchase items from the in-game marketplace.

    Thank you for being a part of DUST 514 on the PlayStation 3. We look forward to the next chapter, and hope you’ll be a part of it and continue the journey with us.

    New Eden is a richer, deeper universe if it has more than just spaceships.

    New Eden doesn't have enough Dakka.

    That's why we need Gallente Assault suits running around with Plasma Rifles shooting stuff at 1000RPM.
    Maximum Dakka, maximum freedom. "DakkadakkadakkadakkaFREEDOMdakkadakkadakka" if you will.
