Remember Deadbreed, the horror-themed, highly customizable MOBA that we’ve given a fair bit of coverage to over the years? Apparently, all that attention wasn’t enough, as the developers have announced that the game will be shutting down on Jan. 31, 2017.

According to the statement on the game’s Steam page from its three-man dev team of Anders, Stefan, and Greger, you can still play the game up to that point, but no more in-game or DLC purchases can be made. There will be no refunds given on any purchases made during Deadbreed’s three-year run.

Did you ever check out Deadbreed? If so, what do you think of its imminent shutdown?

  1. Yeah shutting down because the new developer was trash the old developers are making the new game called Battleright it will be free to play on steam and its like a duel moba not a dota like one

  2. I played this game time ago, a few times, at the start was impossible playing it, connection issues and crashes was the trouble, but when I played it was a good experience(except for lag), the “dark” ambient and the characters “modes” was “nice”. I think that darkness possiblely scared some potential players, in general was a good MOBA (I remember another fallen, but, more “lightness”, Strife).

  3. There are TOP 3 mobas on market from big companies: LoL, Dota2 and HotS. ofc every single low budget sh!t trash moba will shut down…. 3 is enough! there are so many options and genres to make that we dont have…

  4. This is the problem with the MMO genre there is just a constant spam in the market. It’s why I decided not to build my own MMO I was planning to after grade school but after research I trashed that plan the MMO genre is just a complete mess it’s like jumping off a cliff. I wish anyone luck who even builds one because it seems like people just flood it with half built games or garbage games and hardly any good games because they want money from consumers. I agree with GAM theres just to many mobas being flooded in the market they need to chill out on flooding the market and work on making their current projects actually good.

  5. Sorry do not remember it, nor have I played it. Seems such a shame though to see all that work go down the guggller !
    I can remember worse tragedies though, of all my years and years worth of coding and graphics work which vanished in seconds and was never able to be recovered, those where the days when computers constantly crashed and there were so many system/hardware failures it became the norm to after thought of backup! backup! backup!. 🙁
    At least these people can rehash something from this game to create another which is a positive.
