MultiVersus Is Being Delisted And Taken Offline Until Next Year

It's been announced today that the free-to-play Xbox game MultiVersus is being shut down and delisted until it reappears for its full launch in 2024. The closing date for the MultiVersus open beta is June 25th, 2023.

The news was revealed on the official MultiVersus website, where it was explained that the team has a "clearer view of what we need to focus on", and will therefore be taking the game offline for the time being.

"We know there’s still a lot of work to do. As a result, we have a clearer view of what we need to focus on, specifically the content cadence of new characters, maps and modes to give you more ways to enjoy the game, along with updated netcode and more matchmaking improvements. We’ll also be reworking the progression system based on your feedback and looking at new ways for you to connect with your friends in the game.

To do this the right way, we will be closing the MultiVersus Open Beta on June 25, 2023. As part of this process, we’ll be pausing updates and taking the game offline as we prepare for the launch of MultiVersus, which we are targeting for early 2024."

The game will be temporarily delisted on Xbox starting April 4th, although if you've already downloaded it before then, you'll still be able to download it after that date as well. All online features will be disabled following the June 25th server closure, but local matches and the training features will remain playable.

It's fair to say MultiVersus hasn't proved as popular lately as it did back at launch, so hopefully this extra development time will mean the team can regroup and figure out how to come back with a bang in 2024.
