The upcoming free-to-play shooter Splitgate is already turning into one of the surprise video game success stories of 2021.

In less than a month, the open beta of this Halo and Portal-inspired game has now reached 10 million downloads. In response to this, the developer 1047 Games is now thinking about extending the game's beta, as it takes more time to prepare for the final release.

In other words, it might not be fully released in the month of August now.

As teased, players of Splitgate can also look forward to an announcement of sorts at this year's Gamescom, taking place on 25th August.

Splitgate's "mission" according to the developers is to revive the genre many grew up on and show newer games what they've been missing out on:

"Our mission is to help bring back the genre we grew up on and show new gamers what they’ve been missing. Quake, Halo, UT have a special place in our hearts and Splitgate is an homage to them all."
