Rumbleverse Is Getting Axed Later This Month Just Six Months After It Launched
Epic Games’ free-to-play battle royale brawler Rumbleverse will be shutting down later this month just six months after it launched. The lights will officially go out in Grapital City when Season 2 comes to an end on February 28th.
“Live services for Rumbleverse will be turned off on Tuesday, February 28th, at 10am CST when Season Two concludes,” announced developer Iron Galaxy. “After this time, the game will not be playable and any purchased in-game content will no longer be accessible.”
Epic will be offering refunds for all purchases made “on or in the game,” including battle pass and premium currency purchases. The cash shop is now closed and players will be able to enjoy all in-game content for free, including the current battle pass and all-new accessories and emotes, in addition to double XP gains until the servers are taken offline. The dev team will also be counting down the remaining weeks and days with a series of livestreams
There might still be hope for the game though as Iron Galaxy teased the possibility of a relaunch or reboot at some point in the future.
“You may not yet have seen the Rumble in its final form,” the studio said. “If we can welcome people back onto the deck of the battle barge again, we hope you’ll be there, laced up and ready to take your rightful place in the cannon.”
