Dust 514 sees no planned updates, scraps survival mode and Vita app

Dust 514 will see no meaningful updates as development shifts to the newly-announced PC game Project Legion.

A keynote for the PS3-only shooter at EVE Fanfest 2014 gave a brief recap of its first year but failed to outline any upcoming updates and features, and instead focused on Project Legion, which is developed by the same team at CCP Shanghai.

Executive producer Jean-Charles Gaudechon said new modes, such as planned player versus environment survival-style missions, as well as a Vita app, have been cancelled and any updates for the time being would simply "keep improving the experience" rather than adding to it.

"Project Legion is changing things a little bit," he told Digital Spy at EVE Fanfest 2014.

"We need to look at what we have right now, and start putting part of the team on one and part of the team on the other."

Something tells me this game didn't do what it was expected for the PS3.

The game ended up being horrible. The hardware just wasn't there to achieve what was promised. On top of that, and more importantly, many of the most basic aspects such as movement, gunplay, controls, etc were ridiculously flawed. A remake for PS4 could end up decent, but it's not worth trying. My experience with Dust 514 has put me off any FPS from CCP as it's obvious they can't even handle getting the basics right.

PS4 will have planetside 2 free to play which looks like its on another level. This game is just not gonna survive.

There were some things I liked about Dust but overall I couldn't get into it. Can't wait for Planetside 2 on PS4. Miss MAG.

I expect Legion will come to PS4 as well. Just give it time. Porting from the PC could happen.

Damn. People won't be happy about this.

the dust community is ****** off right now project legion is what dust was advertised as some are angry at the move away from PS3 to PC, others don't mind as long as they can take there characters with them they have spent the last 2 years playing this MMOFPS paying real money not because dust is a great game but because it would turn into one, now they have been slapped in the face. let there be no mistake project legion is dust 514 they are not 2 separate games but. dust has no clear future.

Just like i said earlier, CCP was pulling out and a continuation on PS4 is not a reality. They obviously thought this was gonna be more of a success.

Almost forgot this was a thing. Give me my Planetside 2.

Game was too clunky for me, among other things. Good concept, maybe more powerful hardware will help if they hope to try again.

Unnecessarily complex and unintuitive "home base" interface didn't help either, Blacklight has same issue on PC... so damn messy.

Lots of content, just deterring when you first play and if you just want to be casual. Very unapproachable for the novice, which is EVERYONE when they play for the first time (again, I'm speaking of Blacklight on PC in this instance).

Difference is THAT game played (ON PC) smooth as silk.
