Some of you have noticed that in our latest client release, we’ve removed Facebook Chat integration. This was not a decision we made lightly, but we had no choice. Facebook has deprecated support for Chat integration, and is fully cutting it off on April 30th, 2015.
We were seeing a lot of bugs due to Facebook chat, with things like video calls and Facebook stickers causing the Evolve client to crash. With only two months until it is completely removed from Facebook’s system, we decided our efforts were better spent on improving the server population limit, in-game overlay, game tracking, and party system.
As we go forward, we continue to work on the best possible gaming system for you all. We hope that Facebook will re-open their chat protocol at some date, so that we may integrate with them once again.
