PlayCatan End of Term

Apr 03, 2018

As announced during the Early Access phase of Catan Universe, USM took over operating PlayCatan for a transitional period and for a limited time. This has been getting more difficult in recent times. Furthermore, the age of the technical basis of PlayCatan is becoming apparent as well, and both the compatibility with new browser versions and updates for integrated third-party tools are not ensured any longer.

USM gladly extended the run-time of PlayCatan repeatedly at the community’s request, and beared the costs for it. We hope you enjoyed playing on both PlayCatan and Catan Universe during this time.

This year, on consultation with some tournament organizers, USM have increased the run-time of PlayCatan for the last time: PlayCatan will be available until May 31st, 2018. On this last day of May 2018 PlayCatan will be shut down for good. After 23:59 CEST on May 31st, 2018 logging in to PlayCatan will no longer be possible.

At this point we’d like to thank all players who – via our forums – have been participating both since the Early Access phase and after the release, and who have been supporting us with helpful and constructive feedback on Catan Universe. Just like with PlayCatan, which, in the beginning, had included only a fraction of all the features it had after years of continuous improvements and development, USM will continue to invest in improvements and new features of Catan Universe. After the recent publication of a Mac client for Catan Universe, the platform will be improved further and the Catan card game will be added to Catan Universe with the next updates. We’ve got many plans for this year and we’ll keep you updated on a regular basis.
