Amazon officially canceled Creuset, its free multiplayer shooter. It’s the end of a rough journey for the game, which first launched in May after years of development before going back to closed beta in July.
“We really appreciate how our fans have rallied to our efforts, and we’ve loved seeing your responses to the changes we’ve made over the past few months, but at the end of the day we don’t see a healthy and sustainable future. . [for] Creuset, ” the Creuset the team said in a blog post.
If you are in closed beta, you will still be able to play the game in some form for a short while. The developers will be hosting a “final test and community celebration” in the coming weeks, according to the blog. Once that’s done, matchmaking will be disabled, but you will be able to play custom games (which should be available in the next few days) until 3 p.m. ET on November 9. The company also says it will offer a full refund for any purchases you may have made. If you want refunds, follow the instructions on this site.
Creuset developers will be moved to other Amazon Games titles, including New world, Amazon’s next MMO. This game, which is currently scheduled to launch in spring 2021, has had its own challenges, including two delays. And we’re still waiting for the release of Pac-Man Live Studio, a version of Pac-Man that you can play directly on Twitch. Amazon said in May that the game will launch in June, but it’s still not released, and the game’s website only says it’s “coming soon.”
Amazon doesn’t just make games – it also offers a cloud-based gaming service called Luna, which launched last month. Users in the United States can request early access now. If you want to understand how Luna stacks up against other cloud gaming offerings, we’ve got a guide for that here.
