Hyper Scape, Ubisoft’s free-to-play battle royale, will go offline this spring.
News of the outage was announced overnight with the news that the servers would be down on April 28.
Released on August 11, 2020 but reason for closing the game is not provided. Ubisoft only stated that it was a “difficult decision at the end of development” and would “implement important lessons from this game into future products.”
Set in the distant future of 2054, the urban futuristic game pits 100s against each other in FPS melee combat and fast-paced matches. It has different districts of the virtual city of Neo Arcadia, with many verticals.
During matches, you’ll jump from the street to the rooftops and use the Hack “bend the rules to your advantage.”
Developed by Ubisoft Montreal, the game also features deep Twitch integration. Here, viewers can influence the streamer’s game by increasing speed, spawning healing items, and more.
Since Ubisoft didn’t state the reason for shutting down the game after just three seasons, one can only assume it didn’t perform as well as hoped. That’s usually the reason to any degree. But we can only speculate. Which says,in his preview of the gameJim Rossignol said that while the match was fine, there was “something missing”, and that he doesn’t “believe it will be sipping cocktails on the balcony for the next few years.” Sadly, his prediction was correct.
