Rumbleverse, the free-to-play, pro-wrestling-inspired battle royale brawler, will close in February, Epic Games and developer Iron Galaxy Studios announced Tuesday. The game will go offline on February 28, six months after its official launch.
“The remaining weeks will be an opportunity to celebrate the competitive spirit you brought to this game,” Iron Galaxy said. “There will be lots of live streams to play some games with the developers and let them pull back the curtain and share some behind-the-scenes moments of the creative process that built this city.”
The fact is that everything closes at the end of February. Any player who has spent money on the game – including Battle Pass purchases or in-game currency, Brawlla Bills – is eligible for a refund on any platform. “We will be sharing an FAQ page with more refund information soon,” Iron Galaxy said.
“It is our sincere hope that this news does not show the end. Rumbleverse” Iron Galaxy added in a personal open letter to the game’s player community. “You probably haven’t seen the Rumble in its final form yet. If we can get men into the battleship again, we hope you will be there, strapped and ready to take your rightful place in the cannon.
