Amazon Game Studios, an Amazon-affiliated game development division, announced that it will stop future development of Crucible, a basic free match-up TPS launched in May 2020.
Amazon established its own game development division, Amazon Game Studio, in 2014. The game that has been developed since the beginning of its establishment is Crucible. Crucible is a basic free match-up TPS that competes for victory or defeat in teams with various class characters called Hunter. On May 20th, it was officially announced in North America, but it was sluggish, and on June 30th, it was closed due to a close beta, and on October 9th, it was finally officially announced to stop development.
Amazon Game Studios is grateful for the fans’ support for its efforts in the decision to discontinue development, and for seeing the reaction to the changes made during the transition to Close Beta, but in the end, it is a sound and sustainable future for Crucible. He said he didn’t think there was a future. In the future, the Crucible development team will focus on developing other games that Amazon Game Studio is developing.
Accordingly, the Crucible Matchmaking system will be unavailable after October 9th, but custom games can be played until 5am on November 10th. In addition, skins purchased in-game will be refunded in full by applying for Steam support and exclusive forms.
In March 2018, Amazon Game Studios announced the suspension of development of the MOBA Breakaway, set in ancient Rome. In June 2019, it was revealed that popular developers left and mass fired game developers. Amazon’s classic game development continues. Related information can be found here .
