The Culling 2 Being Pulled from Steam, PS4, and Xbox One

The Culling 2 pulled from sale after just one week

The Culling 2 developer Xaviant has announced that it is delisting the recently released battle royale game from online marketplaces, refunding purchasers, and instead focusing its efforts on reviving and supporting the day-one build of the original The Culling. In the video, he admits that the launch of The Culling 2 was "not successful", citing that it was "not a game that you asked for and it's not the game you expect as a worthy successor to The Culling". It's been hard for us to wrap our heads around the situation.

Van Veld apologises for the way the team handled the original game, stating "they didn't see a path forward" at the time, but that in retrospect turning off the game was "a mistake". We weren't happy with the game ourselves.

Josh Van Veld, Director of Operations at Xaviant, states that when searching for solutions, the team came to similar ones as the fans.

Xaviant is now contacting Sony, Microsoft, and Valve to pull the game and ensure people who bought it get refunds. According to Van Veld and his team at Xaviant, "the best course of action is to take that game down off of store shelves". It's also interesting to note that, while the numbers are tiny for both games, The Culling remains far more popular than its sequel: There are at this moment 35 people playing The Culling, while The Culling 2 hit its peak today with two. The Day One version of that game is coming to Xaviant's test servers and will be free-to-play when it relaunches.

As for the regular non-beta version, Xaviant is going to take the current October 2017 build and revert most of its changes to try and match the launch version.

"That means all the perks are coming back, all the airdrops are coming back, combat goes back to its day one form". That's not just relying on the older game-Van Veld said the studio "changed too much too fast" in the first game, and in the process disrupted what fans had enjoyed about it. "We hope that these first couple of steps are going to be clearly the right move".
