Almost a year on from the start of the game’s open beta, MultiVersus has shut down all online functionality until it properly launches next year.
Back in March, MultiVersus developer Player announced that the game would be temporarily shutting down, with a full launch supposedly coming some time in 2024. That time has now come, with the game closing its servers in the early hours of the morning. Booting up the game now will have you meet with the message, “Thank you for your support throughout our Open Beta! The feedback and inspiration has been amazing… We plan to be back and better than ever with new content, features, modes and more when the game returns next year and will ensure that all of your progress and content will carry over.”
It’s a pretty baffling decision on Player First’s part, considering that you could buy battle passes, skins, and more with actual money. Currently there’s just the promise that the game will return next year, though whether that’s enough to bring players back is another question.
