The Culling shutting down servers on May 15th

Despite being one of the first on the battle royale block, even going free-to-play hasn't been enough to save The Culling. Developers Xaviant have announced that the lights go out on their dystopian game show-themed survival shooter on May 15th. It's been a rough year for the studio, with The Culling 2 announced, released and shut down due to lack of player interest within a…

The Culling 2 is dead; long live The Culling?

After its disastrous launch on July 10th, developers Xaviant have announced they intend to pull The Culling 2 from sale, refunding those who purchased it.

The Culling 2 won’t be mucking around in early access

Too soon? Last week’s announcement that The Culling 2 was in development came as a bit of a surprise, not least because the first game only left early access last October, before being left fallow a couple of months later. Though it grew popular in the pre-Plunkbat early access killing fields, the players drifted off, leaving the finished product bereft of contestants. Developer Xaviant argues…

Early battle royaler The Culling is getting a sequel

Before there was Plunkbat and Fortnite, there was The Culling, swaggering into the twilight days of The Age Of Survival Games with a bare-faced but nonetheless accomplished multiplayer take on The Hunger Games - or, as we now call it/as we called it before The Hunger Games, battle royale. The lurid Culling burned bright for many months, as my recurring nightmares that I still have…
