Spellbreak to End

A blog post On the future of Spellbreak reveals that the multiplayer spell-casting game has no future. At least not for long, as word is its servers will shut down early next year. Details beyond that are not provided, but they do thank players for their support:
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.

No future...no future....no future for you!

Seems like the reason for the game being shut down was the devs getting acquired by ActiBlizz:

Well it's been pretty much dead for 12+ months (avg players = 250).

Think OCE land it was 90% bots even in late 2020. It's a shame, i actually didn't mind the game and thought it had potential.

Yeah, it wasn't a bad game. Quality was good (smooth animation, bug free, fast and responsive controls). I'm sort of surprised it wasn't more popular -- though I didn't play all that long either. Maybe people like guns in their battle royals more than spells?
