Splitgate maker ceases updates and announces new game project

1047 Games says that its new title will be within the same universe, free-to-play, and share similar gameplay

Today Splitgate developer, 1047 Games announced that its ending development on the shooter and instead will be focusing on creating a new title.

The studio made the announcement via Twitter, it said that the new game will share similar mechanics and the same universe as well.

"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," 1047 Games said.

"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 free-to-play multiplayer shooter Splitgate launched in May 2019 on Steam and in 2021 its open beta saw two million users.

Last year, the studio also saw a series of funding rounds including it raising $100 million within the span of three months. The investment gave the company a $1.5 billion valuation at the time.
