After over four long years, Rust is leaving Early Access. Rust started out in 2013, releasing it for testing originally as a browser game. After a few months, in December 2013 they released on Steam in Early Access.
The plan is to leave Early Access on the 8th February 2018. They’re not planning any big reveals, launch parties, around the world tours or cash prize giveaways for this event.
It’s very much going to happen without much fuss.
