You probably remember Hyperscape, Ubisoft’s first battle royale released on consoles and PC in the summer of 2020? No ? But if, the game with a cyberpunk look, with a large part of its systems associated with Twitch? Even though it started very strong before falling into total oblivion, only a few months after its debut—so much so that its developers had to promise major gameplay changes to try to give it some semblance of life? Well, if that really doesn’t mean anything to you, today’s news—the imminent shutdown of its servers—shouldn’t upset you too much.
The future will wait
It is by a simple press release on its official website that the publisher confirmed the upcoming closure of the game’s servers, dated for April 28th. There are only a few months left for the most curious players to discover and experience the battle royale that will certainly not have marked its generation.
We have made the difficult decision to halt development of Hyper Scape and shut down the game’s servers on April 28th. We wanted to create a shooter experience that offered intense and fast-paced close combat with verticality, and we thank the community for following us in this adventure. We’ll put everything we’ve learned about this game to good use in
our future projects.
To the entire Hyper Scape community, thank you for the passion and dedication you have shown to the world of Neo Arcadia, in-game and beyond. Your dedication to the game we’ve created will forever be in our hearts.
The sentence is irrevocable
In addition to its pseudo-futuristic artistic direction and its verticality, Hyper Scape relied heavily on its integration with the Twitch streaming site. Spectators could thus influence several elements of the game during the game through an interactive voting system. A bet which will not have convinced the public and which therefore closes its doors, a little less than two years after its release.
