LawBreakers Revival Possible

LawBreakers failed to find a sustainable audience when it launched in August of 2017 and the servers were shut down by September 2018. Shutdowns always affect some players who suddenly find themselves without their favorite game.

Fast forward to 2023, and out of nowhere there is talk by Cliff Bleszinski, the man who headed up the LawBreakers development studio Boss Key Productions, that the game could be due for a revival.

Nexon was, of course, the publisher of LawBreakers and currently holds the rights to the game. Whether they are willing to negotiate for the IP rights to LawBreakers is unknown at this time, as Bleszinski doesn't state negotiations are happening, only that he has a friend who would like to obtain the rights.

As far as Cliffyb's role in a potential LawBreakers revival, he had this to say.

Whether or not anything comes of this, well, we'll just have to wait and see. Nexon may not be willing to sell off the IP, even a dead one. Some companies are just like that. See City of Heroes.

One fan did have a special request regarding any possible negotiations, however (even though their ask is a game held by NCSoft, not Nexon).
