The day the magic died
We always hate to bring you guys sad news, but it’s news nonetheless. The team behind Spellbreak, the battle royale with a focus on magic instead of guns, is stopping development. The game launched for Switch and other platforms back in late 2020, and servers for the game are set to shut down sometime in early 2023.
If you missed out on this free-to-play title or never checked it out, there’s still a bit of time left to hop on and give it a go. You never know what a late rush of dedicated fans can do for a game’s future, but as things stand now, Spellbreak is on its way out.
You can see the message shared by Spellbreak’s dev team below.
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.
