Deathverse: Let It Die is going to be subject to a service suspension, GungHo Entertainment has announced. This service suspension will occur on July 18th, less than a year after the game was released. The reason given is that Deathverse: Let It Die essentially needs to be fully redeveloped and re-released at some point in the future. Players can still play Deathverse: Let It Die until July 18th, but after that it will not be playable.
In a statement, GungHo Entertainment said the following:
Thank you so much for your constant support of DEATHVERSE: LET IT DIE. We are incredibly grateful to everyone who enjoys and enriches the game and its community. There is no doubt that we experienced some challenges since the launch of our game, particularly with regards to in-game matchmaking and lag. We deeply apologize for these issues that may have caused an inconvenience to our players. While we have tried various solutions to some degree of success, we have not been able to resolve the underlying problems. As a result, the development and operations teams have made the decision to temporarily suspend the game’s services while we redevelop DEATHVERSE: LET IT DIE.
This was a difficult decision for us to make. However, we believe that re-releasing the game with significant improvements will allow it to be enjoyed by a wider audience as well as our current players.
Considering how much time goes into developing a game–and that there’s a finite number of games one can possibly make in a lifetime–it’s impossible to say at this stage whether this is the right choice. But we love this game and are proud to have developed it together as a team. Therefore, we believe this is the best possible decision at this time. We will be doing our utmost to prepare for the re-release so that our current community can enjoy the game alongside many more new players in the future. We greatly appreciate your understanding and support.
We are sad to announce that DEATHVERSE: LET IT DIE will be suspending its services as of 07:00 pm (PDT) on July 18, 2023.
Deathverse players will not be able to purchase Death Metal after February 7th, but sales will remain open until then. Deathverse: Let It Die was released in September 2022 for PS4 and PS5, with a PC via Steam in October.
