MultiVersus is already shutting down, but only temporarily. The game launched into open beta in July of last year and has since dropped about 98% of its peak player count from 153,000 to around 700 peak over the last 24 hours. There’s a whole host of reasons why the game has lost almost everyone who has played it in less than a year, and in response the game is going offline to retool some systems.
We know there’s still a lot of work to do. As a result, we have a clearer view of what we need to focus on, specifically the content cadence of new characters, maps and modes to give you more ways to enjoy the game, along with updated netcode and more matchmaking improvements. We’ll also be reworking the progression system based on your feedback and looking at new ways for you to connect with your friends in the game.
Players will have access to the offline mode including training and bot matches in the interim.
MVPs, thank you for the support during Open Beta! The feedback and inspiration has been amazing. Open Beta will close on June 25 as we prepare for full launch in early 2024. #MultiVersus will be back better than ever with new content, features, modes & more when we return. pic.twitter.com/6NOCMRDBrp
