We have crucial information to share about Space Punks.
Flying Wild Hog together with Jagex are very sorry to inform you about the decision to cease support for Space Punks. Update 9: The Pretty One, was the final one. This decision has been made after careful consideration, taking into account market conditions and our goals. Regrettably, it was deemed necessary based on these factors.
Our goal was always to create games that gamers will enjoy for years and will remain in their hearts forever. We’re incredibly proud of the cosmos we’ve managed to build and can’t express enough how much we appreciate all those who have been with us on this journey. Whether it’s from the very moment it arrived on early access or its Open Beta launch. We wouldn’t have gotten this far if it weren’t for your feedback. Thank you for all of your enthusiasm and support in making Space Punks such an adventure.
We’d also like to extend a heartfelt thanks to the Space Punks Team for their immense effort. It is with profound appreciation that we recognize that none of the milestones we’ve reached would have been attainable without the countless hours of hard work, creativity, and expertise that you have poured into this project. The energy and enthusiasm that you brought to the table have been nothing short of inspiring.
Regarding what players can expect from this point onward, live services for Space Punks will go offline on the 6th of November, 2023. The in-game store will cease service and the game will be removed from the Epic storefront at the moment of this announcement, meaning the 5th of September, 2023.
All players that have made purchases are eligible for a refund.

Farewell, Pathfinders, thanks for the awesome ride!
See you on our next adventure!
Following consultation between Jagex, Plaion, and Flying Wild Hog, we have made the difficult decision to end support for Space Punks.
Space Punks will be removed from sale on Tuesday, 5th September, and additional purchases will no longer be available. The game will remain playable until Monday 6th, November, at which point, the servers will be turned off and the game will no longer be playable.
This decision has not been taken lightly, but when considering market conditions and player engagement, this was a necessary decision.
I’ve purchased a Founder’s Pack. Will I receive a refund?
Players who have purchased items will get a refund from the Epic Store from 5th October onwards. The refund process may take a few weeks to complete. Players should contact the Epic Store if they do not receive their refund by 5th November.
Will the Support Centre remain live?
Our Support Centre will be accessible until 6th November. We’ll then have a light Knowledge Base for players needing support in receiving a refund.
