Three Months After Launch, DEATHVERSE: LET IT DIE Suspending Service To Redevelop The Game Amidst Lag And Matchmaking Woes

Apparently some things just aren't able to be fixed in patches, so the game will go totally offline.

Deathverse Let It Die Launch Window

Things have been rocky since the launch of GungHo and Supertrick Games' DEATHVERSE: LET IT DIE. Lag has been a real issue and the matchmaking tools haven't quite been working as intended. Having only released about 3 months ago on PC (and 3 months and a few days ago on PlayStation), the team has tried to address these, and other issues, through patches, but it appears that just isn't going to be enough to get where the dev team wants to be.

As a result, DEATHVERSE will have its service suspended effective July 18th 2023. On the plus side, that means you still have over 6 months of time to play if you've been enjoying the game. On the down side, who knows if the game will actually ever return.

Yes, the team's announcement does say that the suspension is because the team wants to redevelop the game and re-release it later with significant improvements. We've seen this before though and sometimes the game does eventually come back out... and sometimes it doesn't.

The announcement also seems to indicate the potential possibility of not re-releasing by saying, "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."

As it stands right now though, the plan is to eventually turn the servers back on at some point in the future.

You can purchase the Death Metal pack currently on sale until February 7th and use it until the July closure.
