Ubisoft pulls the plug on its Battle Royale shooter ‘Hyper Scape’

Over the course of 2020, Ubisoft tried to break into the Battle Royale genre with its own game, Hyper Scape. The game found some success and popularity initially but swiftly fell off. Now, 18 months later, Ubisoft is pulling the plug. 

After a successful beta, launch and three seasons of post-launch content, Hyper Scape is shutting down. The game's servers will be switched off on the 28th of April, making the game inaccessible. The title will also be removed from console and PC stores.

In a blog post addressing the shutdown, Ubisoft said: ” We have made the difficult decision to end development of Hyper Scape and shut the game down as of April 28th. We set out to create a vertical, close-quarters, and fast-paced shooter experience and we are extremely grateful to our community for joining us on our journey. We will be taking key learnings from this game into future products”.

The post also goes on to thank fans of the game for their support. Unfortunately, no further details were shared on exactly why the game is shutting down, but it likely comes down a lack of sustained popularity across platforms.

KitGuru Says: I missed out on the Hyper Scape rush at launch, but heard good things. Did any of you play Hyper Scape at release? What do you think of the game closing down?
