WildStar is apparently hitting Steam on June 1st (Update: Maybe not?)

You're so cool you're chilly.

WildStar’s Steam page has been updated with an apparent launch date: June 1st.

The Steam page itself went live sans promises back in April, but concerns over lingering rounds of layoffs, the cancellation of the Chinese launch, and poor financial performance in the preceding quarter had sparked worries for the future of the game.

Earlier this month, Carbine announced new class/race combos and a new “Protobucks” currency ahead of the Steam integration.

We have reached out to Carbine for confirmation on the date.

Source: Steam
Update: When asked for confirmation or comment, Carbine told us that an official date has yet to be announced and did not acknowledge or confirm the Steam date. Take that as you will.

Massively OP reader Greaterdivinity points out that the Steam page has removed references to the June 1st, 2016, Steam launch date as of this afternoon.

MesaSage June 3rd, 2014, was the original launch date (it always lists that date over on the right). The June 1, 2016 date was listed at the bottom where it just says 2016 now. I wish I had taken a screenshot this morning before they changed it back to 2016. :(

Random User Give us Auto Assault, Dungeon Runners, Exteel and Tabula Rasa as well whilst you are at it…. Why should City of Heroes be the only one that gets the benefit?

Says “June 3” now.  Because, of course that would be a Friday and if you’re Carbine you forget that launching on a Friday is bad.

Grinnen i always said the game feel like crash bendicot,sonic and rachet games (arcade)
maybe the f2p wasnt the right move because even if you getting more players it dosnt meean you get money.

its worth to have 100 b2p players than 1000 free players who not paying.
this game deserve more than it got.

I wonder how long it will take the narrative to shift from “Wildstar failed and it was a garbage game that you shouldn’t play” to “Wildstar was the greatest game ever made and NCsoft is a monster for killing it” after the game finally shuts down. I’m guessing there will be about 2 hours of I told you so meme posts then people will have lunch, get bored and go back to talking about how NCsoft is gonna shut down guild wars 2 any second. The cycle of hate will move on and nothing will have changed :-P

Dear NCSOFT,
Time to let go of Wildstar and give us City of Heroes 2.
Thanks!

Updated the post above — Carbine got back to us and did NOT confirm the date, saying only that it has not yet announced an official date.
