Subway Surfers returns to Windows 10 this week, drops Windows Phone 8 support
The wait will be over this week, as Subway Surfers finally comes back to Windows! After some time without an app for Microsoft’s platform, the game’s developer, Kiloo will finally release a fully functional UWP app for Windows 10.
Although it didn’t mention any exact release date, Kiloo promised that the new version of Subway Surface will arrive very soon, actually by the end of this week! The new version of the game will be a Universal one, which means players on both Windows 10 and Windows 10 Mobile will be able to play it.
Besides releasing Subway Surfers for Windows 10, Kiloo also announced that it will drop the Windows Phone 8 version of the game. The game won’t be supported on Windows Phone 8 devices anymore, but that doesn’t mean it won’t be playable. Namely, the Windows Phone 8 version of Subway Surfers will stop receiving all updates and patches, but players will still be able to launch it.
“We are working on Subway Surfers versions for Windows for mobile. The next update should be available on Windows 10 for mobile. Subway Surfers, World Tour: Prague is the last update available for Windows Phone 8.
No further updates are planned for Windows Phone 8.”
Subway Surfersas one of the most popular platform games in the world, with millions of users across all major platforms, will definitely be a welcomed addition to the Windows Store. Many players were disappointed when the game originally disappeared form the Windows 10 Store, so its return will delight a lot of people.
Once again, Kiloo didn’t say when exactly the game will be released, so don’t be surprised if in the coming days you just open the Store, and find Subway Surfers available for download.
