Amazon will discontinue its action game Crucible, which was only released last May. The shooter’s servers are to be turned off on November 9, the development team announced in a blog post on Friday.
6 years of development
The game, set in a fantasy world, in which you could fight human as well as alien enemies and had to fulfill tasks, was the first game by Amazon Games. The Amazon developers are said to have worked on it together with Relentless Game Studios for 6 years.
In July, a little more than two months after its release, the game was removed from the Steam platform and was only accessible as a closed beta. At the same time, a revision was announced, but it should not have brought the desired result.
“No sustainable future”
After evaluating the game data, one sees no “healthy, sustainable future” for the game, the developers now write. Purchases made by players want to be fully refunded. New purchases are already no longer possible.
The development team will now focus on other tasks, including working on the online game New World, which is due to be released next year.
