Brink dev's F2P FPS Extraction renamed back to Dirty Bomb

Beta sign-ups re-open.

Last year Brink developer Splash Damage renamed its upcoming free-to-play FPS Dirty Bomb to Extraction. Now it's back to being called Dirty Bomb.

The developer explained that this was "to better fit the game's unique personality" and that it will "almost definitely" be the last name change prior to the game's launch.

"On top of that, we get to use #PlayDirty on Twitter (#LetsExtract just didn't quite have the same ring to it - well, except for dentists, maybe)," Splash Damage added.

In other Dirty Bomb news, sign-ups for the closed beta have re-opened on the game's official site.

An open beta is due later this year, and Nexon has confirmed that it will run dedicated servers for Dirty Bomb in North America, Europe, Australia and New Zealand.
