Epic and Iron Galaxy close Rumbleverse

Iron Galaxy and Epic Games are closing down Rumbleverse later this month.

In a post on the game's website, the duo announced that the title will be shut down on February 28th. This comes just six months after the free-to-play battle royale project was released in August 2022.

"This project has been a labour of love to create a new experience in a popular and highly competitive genre for games," read the post on the game's website.

"If you’ve been a part of that journey, we thank you – whether you jumped into the first playtest after our reveal, or just shot yourself out of the cannon for the first time."

"There is still fun we can have together before the sun sets on Grapital City. The remaining weeks will be a chance to celebrate the competitive spirit you’ve brought to this game. There will be more livestreams to play some games with the developers and let them pull the curtain back to share some behind-the-scenes moments from the creative process that built this city."
