The developers behind free-to-play online mech battler Hawken have revealed the PC version is due to be scrapped.
"After 3 great years, we are shutting down the PC Steam servers to refocus our development efforts," the studio wrote. "The PC game will officially be removed on January 2, 2018, and all DLC and purchasable content will also be unavailable starting today."
Hawken is also available for Xbox One and PS4, but there's no word on whether this will affect the console versions. It could be that the developer's plan to "refocus development efforts" will centre around improving these SKUs, or could hint to a brand new project in the works that will ultimately replace Hawken.
Reloaded Games, best known for APB Reloaded, rescued Hawken from its troubles back in 2015 after the game's original publisher seemingly went under. Hawken's social media channels were silent for nine months before Reloaded revealed it had acquired the game.
