Epic Games’ free game called Rumbleverse, from Iron Galaxy Studios and the Epic Games Store, will be shutting down in February according to a new report.
The game was released on August 11 through PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox. One, Xbox Series S, and Xbox Series X. There’s no word on why the game is shutting down, but it probably has something to do with the fact that virtually no one is playing, which immediately stumbled out and crashed. to generate the level of excitement that a free game needs to survive in the long run.
There are a variety of factors that contribute to this, but chief among these factors is the quality of the game, which isn’t great. Add to this a saturated market dominated by some of the biggest games of all time and little pre-launch enthusiasm, and the game always had a mountain to climb.
There has been no official news about the game shutting down, but according to Tom Henderson, one of the most trusted and reputable experts in the industry, the game will be shutting down at the end of February. If this is true, an official announcement should be imminent. If not true, a statement closing this report should be imminent. In any case, we should receive more information about the future of the game very soon.
