in August 2022, Epic Games – the developers of Fortnite, the managers of the Epic Games Store, the creators of the bad engine, rich as gods – released a royale game of melee called Rumbleverse. It is now January 2023 (February already for me here in Australia), and the game has been killed. Here are some thoughts Zack wrote in September 2022 – you may remember September 2022, this happened – in which he said that despite the boring style of Battle Royale and Epic themselves have Fortnite, it’s beautiful!

Although I’m a sucker for the Rumbleverse and find his challenge series to be frustrating at this point, he’s always happy to push it and play again. There are a lot of good (and bad) royale shooters in 2022. But the good, the beautiful, and the exciting struggle of the battle royale – which has a variety of strong, no less – is a good thing to have. I hope that the game is sustainable and has a future season with more content, quests and challenges that can help make the game more fun, even for shitty fighters like i. Womp.
The developers of Iron Galaxy announced the decision to discontinue the game earlier today:
They followed that up with a short statement on their company site, in which they shared the hope that just because Epic is killing the game doesn’t mean it’s dead forever, and that “You haven’t seen the Rumble in its last. appear but”:
At Iron Galaxy, we strongly believe in the value of bringing people together to share valuable experiences in gaming. Each of us is a game. This is what inspires us to create. With the final announcement of the Rumbleverse, we want to share some personal details with the players who joined us in Grapital City.

We sincerely hope that this news does not mark the end of the Rumbleverse. You may not have seen the Rumble in its final form.
