Rust's Data Center Burns In A Fiery Blaze, "Large Amount" Of Data Destroyed

It appears the studio did not have backups, as the company acknowledges that "data will be unable to be restored."

Some difficult news today for the Rust community, as developer Facepunch has announced a "total loss" of some servers in the EU and related data due to a huge fire.

Writing on Twitter, the studio said, "We've confirmed a total loss of the affected EU servers during the OVH data centre fire. We're now exploring replacing the affected servers."

However, it appears there might not have been any backups, as Facepunch added, "Data will be unable to be restored." In another, later update, Facepunch said EU servers are now coming back online, but all progress has been reset.

 
 

The first took place at the OVH data center in Strasbourg. CEO of the company, Octave Klaba, shared some updates on the situation on Twitter, noting that people who worked there are safe. He said firefighters arrived on the scene immediately but could not put the fire out.

 

Here is a photo and a video from the scene that speaks to the devastating damage of the fire, the cause of which is unknown.

 
 

Rust has enjoyed a new lease on life recently after Twitch streamers began to play it again, giving the game overall a big boost. The console edition of the game for PS4 and Xbox One finally now has a release window: Spring 2021.

Huge streamers like Pokimane and Shroud helped to reignite interest in Rust in early January. It became one of the most-watched games on Twitch and even became one of the most popular games on Steam.
