We are excited to announce that Overcast has been acquired by the Lifeboat Network and will not be shutting down any time soon!
Lifeboat is a Minecraft Pocket Editon network that regularly has over 50,000 players on a single day and over 8 million unique players, making it the largest Minecraft network in the world. They share our interest in fair, strategic gameplay, and organized competition. They are big Overcast fans, and approached us months ago about an acquisition, before we were even planning to shut down. I can’t think of anyone better suited to carry the Overcast vision into the future.
Many details of the transition are still being worked out, but generally you can expect us to continue with the plans and goals we already have, with a boost in resources from Lifeboat. We will be posting an FAQ in the coming days when we have more information.
