The Culling: Origins, the free-to-play do-over of The Culling that went live in September 2018, will be closed in May. Developer Xaviant said in a farewell message that it had hoped in-app purchased would generate enough revenue to support the battle royale game, but it hasn't worked out. Xaviant decided to make The Culling free to play after the release of The Culling 2 in July 2018 went disastrously wrong.

Free players play on the same servers as those who have bought the game. "The lag makes this unplayable," reads one user review, while another says that "making this game rely on a random host for the networking is ridiculous". Nearly all of the reviews—including the
