Keep in mind Battleborn? Gearbox’s reply to Overwatch was an identical hero shooter with flamboyant characters, but it surely did not catch on in the identical means. Upon launch in 2016, it gained pretty optimistic opinions, however did not make a lot of an impression amongst shoppers, and writer 2K Video games could not muster any actual enthusiasm.
The sport was saved alive with updates till a couple of yr later, and in 2019, it was withdrawn from sale on digital shops. Since then, issues have slowly been winding right down to an eventual server shutdown. Yesterday (31st January 2021) was the final day you might log in and play Battleborn. Now, with online support officially over, it is a recreation misplaced to time. It is now not playable in any capability.
It is a unhappy story, however sadly, not each recreation can seize the second in the way in which the likes of Overwatch or Fortnite have. The upside is that Gearbox has had way more success not too long ago with Borderlands 3, so we’re positive it is not too saddened by this. Onward and upward.
