The Culling 2 released last week and, right away, it tanked. After a week of negative reviews and its online player-base dropping into the single digits, The Culling 2’s creators at Xaviant Games have pulled the plug.

According to the studio’s YouTube video announcement today, anyone who purchased the $US20 ($27) game across Xbox One, PS4 and PC is eligible for a refund. The announcement ended with a twist: Rather than try to fix The Culling 2, Xaviant plans to go back and start updating The Culling 1 instead.
