After a successful 5-year run and lots of post-launch updates, Evil Empire and Motion Twin have officially ended support for rogue-lite, metroidvania-inspired, action-platformer Dead Cells. This means that The End is Near patch will be the last big content update for the game.
"Update 35 for Dead Cells marks the end of our creative journey on the game. After an incredible 5-year collaboration in bringing additional content to Dead Cells' live-ops, Evil Empire will be pursuing new adventures and we can't wait to see what they come up next," reads the statement from Motion Twin.
According to the statement from Evil Empire, the studio will now focus on their own projects, which remain a secret for now. The developer has teased the possibility of working on two games and promised to reveal more details in the near future.
Motion Twin expressed their gratitude to Evil Empire for their support throughout the years and wished them success with their new endeavors.
"In closing, we are wishing the best to Evil Empire on their upcoming projects and want to express our deepest gratitude to you, the players, for your unwavering support and passion for Dead Cells," wrote Motion Twin.
Speaking of the last update of Dead Cells, the release date remains unknown. However, Motion Twin assured players that they will continue to release patches to address any bugs.
In June 2023, Motion Twin announced that the studio was working on an adaptation of Dead Cells. For more details, you can check this article.
