Durango Wild Lands is shutting down but will receive two updates before service termination

One of the most popular MMOG games, Durango Wild Lands is shutting down in two months. But before talking about the shutdown, let us discuss a little about the game. Durango Wild Lands features a prehistoric land in which players can explore, craft, and create a new life and civilization.

Durango Wild Lands also features dinosaurs and takes players to the Jurassic era. The game’s prehistoric environment is filled with modern-day items, giving players a perfect balance of the contemporary and ancient world.

Durango Wild Lands is pretty relaxing in nature as it also allows players to gather, craft, hunt, cook, and farm. The game gives players a chance to explore many types of islands. The game’s multiplayer feature allows players to work as a team and create sprawling villages.

The game is expected to receive two updates before the termination of service. Have a look at the game service termination schedule down below.

The final quest will also answer many questions that came to players’ minds when they explored the world of Durango. Developers of the game are also trying to find a way by which players can keep their private islands even after the termination of game service.


This will allow you to see your private island after the termination and also show it to others. You can read the complete note from Durango: Wild Lands team down below.

Durango Wild Lands Shutting Down

From their Facebook page:

Dear fellow pioneers,

We are Eunseok Yi (Executive Producer of What!Studio) and Seungmyeong Yang (Producer of Durango: Wild Lands). We have prepared this note to represent our development team and all those involved. It is with our heavy hearts that we inform you of our grim news on this developer’s note.

After Durango: Wild Lands was released, our pioneers have turned the wild lands into a new world. Vacant islands became flourishing cities, and lands of nothing became homes, farms, and shelters to many pioneers.

To put it bluntly, we have decided to end the service of Durango: Wild Lands. It seems we have reached our final destination in the wild lands that we have explored together. We would like to apologize and show our gratitude through this note.

We would sincerely like to thank you, our pioneers, for being part of the Durango world. We, as developers and operators of the game, were able to do our jobs largely due to your support. While the in-game characters were warped to Durango despite their intentions, you our pioneers chose to be part of our family. We deeply empathize with you not being able to continue your expeditions in Durango.

Life in Durango will continue on until its termination. We will continue its development so that memories from the wild lands will last for a prolonged period.

Final Chapter of Durango: Wild Lands The finale for Durango’s main storyline is in preparation. It will be available for pioneers through quests. The end is connected to the beginning, as K and X are the main characters for it. It will also include many answers to questions that arose as you explored the world of Durango.

Combat Island & Instruments Combat Island is a PvP content in which pioneers gather in a small island for a fight to the finish. In a sense, the structure is a bit similar to the previous Warp Rush. The play experience, however, is something quite different. With the loots that you receive from the Combat Island battles, you can craft rare weapons that you can boast to other pioneers.

Instruments will also be introduced in the next update. In contrast to the action-packed combat of Combat Island, the new instrument system will bring a tone of peace. You can select a piece and play it, or utilize the editing function in order to create your own. Craft and play the new instruments so that you can spread tranquility in a world of exploration and survival that is Durango.

Faster & Better Experience in Durango In order to experience the many contents in Durango: Wild Lands, one needed to invest time and effort. Now, considering that we’re near the end, we are preparing an update that will bring in a way to enjoy the various contents in a short amount of time. But at the same time, we will try our best not to diminish the gameplay of the past.

Keeping the Private Islands We are currently trying to find a way for pioneers to keep their private islands even after the service for Durango: Wild Lands ends. This will allow you to see your private island after the termination and also show it to others.

Upcoming schedule for Durango: Wild Lands will be available soon, while details regarding the end of service will be posted within today through a separate announcement. We will strive to not only create a better gaming environment until the very end, but also provide precious memories. The service of Durango: Wild Lands will come to an end, but the lore of the Durango world and further strides from our development team will continue. We hope that you will join us in our future adventures. Thank you.
