Gungho Online will suspend all services for Deathverse: Let It Die, the battle royale spiritual sequel to 2016’s Let It Die to support redevelopment. The suspension will begin on July 18, 2023, less than one year since the game’s release on September 28, 2022. The game is free-to-play, however paid Death Metal currency sales will stop on February 7, 2023.
In a letter published on the Deathverse: Let It Die website, the development team cited ongoing challenges with things like lag and in-game matchmaking that have persisted since launch. Unable to fully resolve these issues with live updates, the team decided to temporarily suspend services in order to redevelop the title.
No duration for the suspension has been announced. Nor has the team commented on what areas the redevelopment will reach. However, the letter does state that the game will be re-released with “significant improvements.”
With the upcoming suspension, the Deathverse team will be ending the sale of premium currency, Death Metal, on February 7, 2023. Additionally, while the entirety of Season 2 will be released as scheduled, Season 3 content will only be partially available.
Deathverse: Let It Die is currently available on the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and PC, and the service suspension will begin on July 18, 2023. There is no indication of how long the redevelopment phase will last.
