Unit 2 Games has announced that its free-to-play game creation and sharing tool Crayta will shut down on March 3.

Back in 2020, the title launched on Google Stadia, and in March 2021, it joined the Epic Game Store.

"While we've expanded Crayta significantly since launch, we've unfortunately not seen quite enough growth for us to justify continuing," the studio said.

"Google Stadia shut its doors recently, which was the initial launch platform for Crayta, so we've decided that now is the right time to bring things to a close, despite the dedicated efforts of our team and our community."

Meta, then known as Facebook, acquired Unit 2 Games in June 2021.

Additionally, the games studio said that it still exists and will share news about its next project later.

Crayta's closing follows a number of titles that have been announced for shuttering.
