We have been patiently waiting to here the outcome of recent news regarding shadow's bankruptcy filings. We understand right now that the 2 bids reportedly submitted last week have now been presented to the French administrative judge. The court will now review all available materials and make its final decision on April 30, 2021.
Both companies submitted strong bids and it seems like both bidders are committed to continue and grow the business. Once the buyer has been chosen Shadow will work closely with them to announce their joint vision for the future.
In the meantime, it's business as usual and they continue to make regular updates, bug fixes and improvements.
Here is the direct quote from the Shadow UK Discord:
[ IMPORTANT NEWS]
The situation at hand
The beginning of a new chapter is in sight - with just about two weeks (yes, really two weeks) to go.
[WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW]
Earlier this week, the two companies bidding to take over Shadow presented their cases to the French administrative judge. The court will now review all available materials and make its final decision on April 30, 2021.
The good great news:
both companies submitted very strong bids, and we can safely say both bidders are committed to continue and grow the business.
Once the buyer has been chosen, we will work with them closely to announce our joint vision of the future of Shadow, and will get cracking on making the service the best damn thing you’ve ever experienced.
It’s been a long and hard road, but regardless of the outcome, it’s made one thing clearer than ever: We are grateful to have a community as magnificent as you, and couldn’t be more fortunate to enter this next chapter with you by our side.
[MEANWHILE] It’s business as usual at Shadow. We are heads down working on improving your gaming experience with regular updates, bug fixes and improvements.
