The development team behind the battle royale free-to-play title Spellbreak has today announced the game will be shutting down in "early" 2023.
Although it's been around since 2018, it wasn't available on Xbox until 2020 - making it a short stay on the platform now that it's closing.
Here's the goodbye message from the team:
"Breakers, after more than four years of elemental magic and spell combinations, we’ve made the decision to end development of Spellbreak. The servers will be shut down as of early 2023. Thank you to the millions of players who have joined us in the Hollow Lands since 2018; it’s been an amazing journey."
"We are grateful to everyone in the game’s community for exploring the magical worlds and experiences we created together. Spellbreak was an ambitious project that saw our team push new boundaries in design and development and we are excited to continue to innovate as we create new titles in the future."
Did you play this game at all during its time on Xbox? Leave a comment down below.
I played it for a short time when it first came onto Xbox. It was all right but didn't grab my interest
It kinda sounds interesting to bad I just heard of it now.
I enjoyed the gameplay, it just didn't hold my BR friends interest.
I hope they take the mechanics and make a cool coop game put of it.
I was enjoying this game recently. The graphics are stunning and I enjoyed the spell play.
This is what happens when you have a market that has a finite audience with a finite amount of time to dedicate to a title, and every title wants every second of those finite resources.
Think they are lucky to have lasted 3-5 years.
What? Nooooo. I love this game. Love how you could combine the gauntlets and make the game
I hate that with the modern gaming how many non AAA games get abandoned or just not released. If you try to do something different it is almost guaranteed you will fail.
To make things worse, it looks like it is being closed down because Blizzard bought the studio and has them working on World of Warcraft.
