Crucible, a free-to-play multiplayer shooter, has officially cancelled by the Amazon. It’s the end of the game’s tumultuous journey, which was first released after years of development in May before being placed back into closed beta in July.
The Crucible team said in a blog post, “We very much appreciate the way that our fans have rallied around our efforts, and we’ve loved seeing your responses to the changes we’ve made over the last few months, but ultimately we didn’t see a healthy, sustainable future ahead [for] Crucible”. If you’re in the closed beta, you’ll still be able to play the game in any-way for a short while.
According to the site, the developers will hold “a final playtest and community celebration” in the next few weeks. Once that’s completed, matchmaking will be disabled, but before 3 PM ET on November 9th you will be able to play custom games (which are supposed to be available in the coming days).
The firm also states that for any transactions you may have made, it will offer a full refund. For refunds, you can follow the instructions on this site.
More new games are coming after Crucible got cancelled
Now Crucible developers will switch to other Amazon Games, including New World, Amazon’s forthcoming MMO. The game, currently scheduled to be released in the spring of 2021, has had its own series of challenges, including two delays. And we’re still waiting for Pac-Man Live Lab, a version of Pac-Man that you can play directly on Twitch. In May, Amazon said the game will be released in June, but it’s not out yet, and the game’s website just says it’s “coming soon.”
Amazon is not only making games, It already has a cloud gaming service named Luna, which it introduced last month. Right now, users in the US can request early access to it.
