The "fantasy-action" battle royale Spellbreak has announced it will be shutting down its servers "early" next year.

The live service game has only been around since 2018, and was released on the Nintendo Switch in September 2020 as a free-to-download title. In this time millions of playes have apparently participated in the fun.

Here's the full message from the development team:


After more than four years of elemental magic and spell combinations, we’ve made the decision to end development of Spellbreak. The servers will be shut down as of early 2023. Thank you to the millions of players who have joined us in the Hollow Lands since 2018; it’s been an amazing journey.

Our vision was to create a fresh, multiplayer action-spellcasting game with exceptional movement and class customization that would give players the chance to unleash their inner battlemage. We are grateful to everyone in the game’s community for exploring the magical worlds and experiences we created together. Spellbreak was an ambitious project that saw our team push new boundaries in design and development and we are excited to continue to innovate as we create new titles in the future.

To all Spellbreak fans around the world, thank you for the support and dedication that made the game and community so special.
