Legion Bulletin Posted September 4, 2022 Share Posted September 4, 2022 From DualShockers: 1047 Games, the creators of critically-acclaimed indie shooter Splitgate, has announced that they are currently working on a new triple-A game, which will take place in the Splitgate universe. However, the studio will end further development of Splitgate to shift their priorities to developing their dream project. “We are, in a way, bailing water while also trying to keep everyone who bought a ticket to board our ship happy, while also trying to turn our boat into a rocket ship. After careful consideration and much deliberation the 1047 Games team has determined that in order to build the game fans deserve – and to build it in a way that isn’t trying to retrofit and live operate an existing product – we are ending feature development of Splitgate”, the developers said via a Twitter announcement.

The development team confirmed that their new triple-A title will be a shooter like its spiritual predecessor, and will be developed in Unreal Engine 5. It looks like the forthcoming AAA title aims to carry some key aspects of Splitgate to the next level, improving the in-game portal mechanism and multi-dimensional, fast-paced combat. According to 1047 Games, the brand new shooter, ”which will present revolutionary, not evolutionary, changes” will be free-to-play. Splitgate gained huge success in the gaming world, with over 18 million downloads since its initial release back in May 2019. As the developer team renews, its significant success across all platforms brought them the opportunity to start working on their triple-A project, the title of which has not yet been revealed. Indie developer 1047 Games went on the game’s official website to say that Splitgate will no longer receive updates so that the team can focus on their new triple-A project. Although no new content for Splitgate will enter development, support for the online services will still continue. 1047 Games will launch a new Battle Pass on September 15th, which will be free for everyone. Items and progression will also be maintained after the feature development of Splitgate come to an end. “Game support will continue and there will be smaller updates and fixes to Splitgate, but the bulk of our focus will be on an entirely new shooter that we can’t wait to share with you.” We’re likely to hear more about what the studio is currently working on in the months ahead. Splitgate is available to play on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and PC via Steam.
