It doesn’t matter what genes you combine, Darkspore is dying

, | Games


Bad news for all remaining Darkspore fans. According to an announcement on the official forum, EA’s gene-splicing action RPG has been abandoned by the publisher. Months of server issues have apparently made the game unplayable for many players.

Darkspore is no longer developed. It is for almost all intents & purposes an abandoned title. If you cannot play the game & have flicked through technical issues for any fixes, then contact EA Customer Support; especially if it regards CD-Keys or refunds.

Error 73003 has gone unfixed & remains an issue.

Error Code 3 has arisen for the majority/all & remains an issue.

I will however keep the forums here as clean & tidy as possible in my spare time. Why? Well why not. If it helps anyone with minor problems, or find their way somewhere, then that’s great.

I wish you all luck, no matter what path you choose with Darkspore.

Darkspore has been de-listed from Steam, lending credence to the announcement. You can still purchase the game from EA’s Origin service should you feel like giving the publisher some money.

UPDATE: The Darkspore forums have been updated with new information.
