We all knew this was coming but it was officially announced today.
THE LAST STAND: DEAD ZONE - SUN SETTING
Last Updated: September 15, 2020
Browsers are set to remove Flash plugin from their functionality at the end of December 2020. As many of you know, Dead Zone is built on Flash and relies on the plugin in order to even run.
We spent some time researching alternatives and speaking to platform holders, trying to find a way that would allow the game to continue running. However, we found there were no compatible solutions with our game and the structure the game was built on. This unfortunately leaves us with no way to continue to run The Last Stand: Dead Zone past December 31st, 2020.
In addition to the removal of Flash, certain platforms are moving forward with plans to remove their gaming services entirely. This would see the removal of the game entirely from those platforms.
Due to all of these factors, we've made the decision to sunset The Last Stand: Dead Zone. The process will be gradual and we will conclude at the end of the year 2020.
- November 15th, 2020 - In game store will be closed
- December 31st, 2020 - End of Flash, game servers will be switched off
The people past and present who worked on Dead Zone thank you for playing the game over the past nearly 8.5 years - we hope you enjoyed your time with it. Servers will be up and running until the end of the year, we hope you are able to make the most of it.
