RUST EU servers were destroyed this morning by a vicious fire that caught one of OVHcloud's data centres in France, Facepunch Studios have confirmed.

Just a few days after Facepunch Studios announced that their online multiplayer survival game RUST is finally coming to PlayStation and Xbox consoles , the British developer found themselves in serious trouble. 

As confirmed, their EU servers were destroyed in a fire that engulfed OVHcloud's buildings in France. OVHcloud is one of the leading cloud providers in Europe, and their SBG2 data centre in Strasbourg has been completely destroyed. 

The fire broke out Wednesday morning, and it took as long as six hours to bring it under control. Fortunately, no one was hurt. As many as 114 firefighters and 44 machines were involved in extinguishing the fire, local news reported. The SBG1 data centre is also damaged, but not much. SBG3 and SBG4 are intact, but shut down.

What everyone is interested in, especially Rust players from EU territory, are unfortunately bad news. Facepunch Studios have confirmed that the player's data lost in fire will not be recoverable. 

There are no more details for now, but we will monitor the situation.
