Ubisoft has announced that its free-to-play battle royale game Hyper Scape will be retiring on April 28 after less than two years of operation.

In a nutshell blog entryUbisoft announced that it has “made the difficult decision to end development on Hyper Scape and release the game on April 28th.

The company says its vision of creating a vertical, fast-paced shooter may not have gone as far as it could, but that Ubisoft “will incorporate important learnings from this game into future projects.”

There’s no word on whether current players will get a farewell bonus, but Ubisoft thanked the community for their dedication and passion.

Hyper Scape was Ubisoft’s answer to the battle royale boom following the success of games like Fortnite and Apex Legends. Unfortunately, despite its map design and vertical gameplay, Hyper Scape didn’t have what it takes to stand out from the competition.

However, Ubisoft hasn’t completely abandoned the genre. In October 2021, the company announced Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Frontline, a battle royale game set in the Ghost Recon universe.

However, Ghost Recon Frontline has been postponed indefinitely. It’s unclear if Ubisoft will first investigate what happened to Hyper Scape before proceeding with the release of Frontline.
