Is the game dead? I haven't heard from developers on new plans or patches in months, and their Youtube channel is gone. What's going on?

Well, The Game Servers are still online and there are still active players. According to Steamcharts, there are about 120-130 Players online worldwide by average.

But you are right, there was few active Support and no updating by the Studion since January, why many posters in this Forum are some Kind of upset or fearing that it might be a matter of months to the total shutdown. There is also a poster named "Rockbell", who sounds very optimistic, but as she refuses to give any sources for the information in her posts I wouldn't call her reliable.

I for Myself still hope, that the game hasn't reached its end yet, especially since the Steamcharts show a stop in the Downsmashing Playercount in the last months. But I would't recommend to spend real money on this game, as I'm not really sure weather the game still has a long future.

In the last weeks Dreadnought indeed looks like it starts to recover a little. As I said, the Steam charts indicate a stabilizing Player base since April and yees, there was a little event this weekend.

Well, let's just hope there are some players left to have fun with that bigger "Patch" they are working on when it gets released. I will play the game from time to time for as long as it still exists, as I did since I startet Dreadnought about one Year ago. It is still a good game for taking a little break from Studying (applied natural science in my case) and blowing something up. So I would still recommend it for players who just want to have some fun with tactical space combat.

But, as I said, I would not pay any real life money on it for as long as Dreadnoughts future is so uncertain, and I also cannot recommend it to hardcore players wich search for a game the can spend days on, as it is not (yet) diversified enough to be an independent hobby.

According to Mrs. Rockbell (not really sure if Rockbell is female or male, but seems to be female from the pictue) the Developers might be planning to overhaul the game completely. Let's see what will come.

It makes me mad because at its core this game is so AWESOME!

To see it essentialy ignored by the devs for so long is infuriating.

A broad sweep of balance changes would really help warp the game in the right direction, we need a huge shake up in the meta. Something big.

In the current state, the game is very stale. Maybe by the "metrics" its balanced, but players need a change!

Probably during the Ceres awakens event.
