Upcoming patch Phase III
Posted 1576 days ago
Once the countdown hits 0 all services will be taken offline for maintenance and updates.
There is no estimate for how long the downtime will be, but expect a minimum of 24 hours.
Once maintenance and updating is complete Phase III will finally go live after another short countdown.

Additional notes:
The Ecumenopolis feature has been postponed in order to leave more time to fine-tune production rates and resource collection. This is so that I can make sure the cost of an Ecumenopolis accurately reflect the mechanics it unlocks.
