The Rumbleverse brawler battle royale sunset screenshot

Despite trying some interesting new ideas, it sadly looks like the Brawler and Battle Royale hybrid Rumbleverse has not managed to garner enough of a playerbase to warrant further development. As such, developer Iron Galaxy has now announced that the Rumbleverse servers will be shutting down on February 28th, 2023.

"This project has been a labor of love to create a new experience in a popular and highly competitive genre for games," reads the developer update. "If you’ve been a part of that journey, we thank you – whether you jumped into the first playtest after our reveal, or just shot yourself out of the cannon for the first time."

"We are closing the store and opening the full experience to every player. The current Battle Pass will be granted to everyone. Your XP gains will be doubled so you can fast-track unlocks for every rank. Quads, Trios, Duos, and Solos will be live and we’ve unlocked additional accessories and emotes in the game for free as well."

If you've spent any sort of money on Rumbleverse, and this includes purchasing either the Battle Pass or in-game currency, you will be eligible for a refund. A bit of patience will be necessary, however, as the exact details have not been announced just yet. That said, they will be going live as a part of the updated FAQ in the near future, so make sure to keep an eye on that.

The final thing worth mentioning is that the developers will be streaming the game during its last few weeks in order to share some behind-the-scenes tidbits about Rumbleverse's creation. So if you're a fan of Rumbleverse, or just curios about the game development process, you can keep track of any developer streams over at Twitter.

Have fun with those last few matches, and I'll leave you with the original gameplay trailer for old time's sake:
