Gotham City Impostors Quietly Sunsets

After nine years of service.

Gotham City Impostors is shutting down, at least that’s what all the signs are pointing to. While neither Monolith Productions or Warner Bros. Games have made an announcement as of this publishing, Gotham City Impostors and all of its DLC packs have been officially retired from the Steam store as of this afternoon.

Released in 2012 for PC, PS3, and Xbox 360, the PlayStation 3 servers shut down in 2014 due to the closure of Gamespy. PC servers went down in 2012 due to the closure of Games For Windows Live, however the service relaunched the same year as a free to play title. The Xbox 360 version was once given away for free on Xbox Live Gold, but remains pay to play. The Microsoft Store is still up and selling the 360 version of the game.

Gotham City Impostors was a 6v6 first person shooter that pitted Batman and Joker stans against one another. The Steam version has remained at a sub-200 concurrent player count for at least the last four years, and Warner Bros. put the game into maintenance mode quite some time ago. As of this publishing, SteamDB shows 20 people on the game.

Assuming I don’t get subverted in the middle of writing this article, I expect an official announcement to be made within the next few days.
