Windows 10 Mobile is basically dead, and many developers have opted to no longer support Windows Phone apps due to the unpopularity of Microsoft’s mobile platform. The latest developer to jump off the ship is Kiloo, which according to a report from WindowsArea.De (via Softpedia) will no longer support their popular Subway Surfers game on Windows 10 Mobile.
An email sent to a customer from the Kiloo support team (which is cited in the original report) notes the Cairo update for Subway Surfers on Windows 10 Mobile will be the final update for the game. The email also points to the “Platform owner” (Microsoft) as a reason for the decision. See the full email below:
Thanks for being a loyal player on the Windows platform!
Unfortunately, Cairo is the last update for subway surfers on the platform. You can keep enjoying the game, but we will not release further updates, due to the development plan of the platform owner.
The news should not be shocking, as the developer likely wants to focus their attention and energy towards the more popular iOS or Android platforms. Subway Surfers should continue to run fine on Windows phones, but you’ll now have to switch platforms to enjoy the new game content.Further reading: Microsoft, Subway Surfers, Windows 10 Mobile, Windows Phone
