Articles on: General Information - End of the journey

Dear Gamecaster Community,

It is with great regret that we announce the closure of Gamecaster on March 31, 2023.

As previously communicated, we had hoped that Gamecaster's integration with XSplit would provide us with the necessary resources to continue maintaining the app and addressing the technical issues that have been affecting many of you. However, we have since faced the unfortunate reality that the original development team behind Gamecaster have moved on to pursue other opportunities. Gamecaster is a complex application that relies heavily on third-party integrations and advanced internal components, and without the dedicated expertise of the original team, the app's functionality has significantly deteriorated.

Additionally, while the support of our Pro users has enabled us to continue operating Gamecaster thus far, sales have not been sufficient to cover ongoing operational costs. As a result, the number of active Pro subscribers has been decreasing due to the technical issues encountered.

We will continue to provide support for Gamecaster until March 31, 2023, after which we will shut down the servers. Please note that any assets you may have stored in the Gamecaster cloud and the app itself will be inaccessible after this date. We encourage you to export any data that you wish to keep.

For all active Pro subscribers, we have canceled your subscription at the end of your current license period to avoid any further charges. As a token of appreciation for your support, we are providing all active Pro subscribers with a key for an XSplit Premium Bundle license, which includes access to both XSplit VCam and XSplit Broadcaster. Kindly check your email for more details and the license key.

XSplit Broadcaster has been empowering millions of streamers for over 13 years and allows for limitless customization, making it a suitable alternative for many of you. Similarly, we hope that XSplit VCam, our AI-powered background replacement application for video calls and content creation, will be of assistance to you.

Although we are saddened by the closure of Gamecaster, we would like to express our sincere gratitude to the community for your support and feedback over the past few years. We have learned much from this experience and appreciate the community's contributions that have helped us grow.

Finally, we would like to extend a special thank you to our Community Helpers Raths, Eddy, Radgryd, Duman, and SuperResiK, without whom we would not have made it this far. We wish you all the best in your future endeavors.
