Disintegration’s multiplayer modes are going offline, according developer V1 Interactive. The game’s multiplayer modes will be gradually removed in phases; the in-game store leaves Disintegration today. By Nov. 17, V1 Interactive will fully remove all multiplayer elements from the game. The single player campaign will remain accessible for players, and there are no plans to remove or alter that content.
“While our player base showed interest in the single player campaign, the game unfortunately struggled to build a significant audience necessary for a compelling multiplayer experience,” the developer explained in its official post.
The single player campaign put players into a dystopia where post-humanist robots plan to wipe out the remains of non-robotically integrated humanities. The protagonist, Rohmer Shoal, is an outlaw gravcycle pilot who leads a team of heroes to save humanity.
Multiplayer was originally meant to be a big aspect of Disintegration, with several game modes and match types set up to accommodate a variety of playstyles. Unfortunately, it never found its audience, and V1 Interactive will be moving onto new projects. The statement ends with the developer thanking players, and stating: “We believe the video game industry needs constant innovation, and we will continue to take risks, follow creative visions, and support new ideas.”
