Ubisoft is going to shut down Hyper Scape, a free-to-play battle royale game that was released less than two years ago. Well, you guys might never hear of this game, since the game is very unpopular.
Hyper Scape was first revealed in the summer of 2020, then released shortly after the reveal. The game differs from the other battle royale games with some of its own characteristics and features, such as small loadout, faster travel speed, and ability for the livestream viewers to vote in-game events that affect the ongoing match.
The game is available on PC through Uplay, PS4, and Xbox One. The shutdown is scheduled to take place on 28 April 2022, as stated in Ubisoft official blog that states:
“We have made the difficult decision to end development of Hyper Scape and shut the game down as of April 28th,”
Ubisoft also expresses its gratitude to the community for joining the journey and takes the game as the lesson for its future products. The reason behind the shutdown is not revealed, but the highest probability of the shutdown is caused by the game’s unpopularity and to reduce the company’s maintenance budget.
The latest patch for Hyper Scape was released on 7 April 2021, almost a year ago. The latest patch brings several balancing changes requested by the community, together with improved ammo management in Team deathmatch mode and several bug fixes. Till today, there’s no update released since then.
As of today, Hyper Scape is still available for download.
