Earlier this year when we Reviewed Disintegration, we noted that the multiplayer was a barren wasteland with almost no active players.
Today, Private Division and V1 Interactive have made the tough decision of removing the Multiplayer from the game entirely, starting on November 17th. Their official statement reads:
“We have made the difficult decision to remove Disintegration’s multiplayer modes from the game across all platforms. This will be done in phases over the coming months, starting today with the removal of the in-game store, and will conclude on November 17th with the full removal of multiplayer. The single-player campaign will remain fully playable moving forward.
From both the development team at V1 Interactive and publishing group at Private Division, we stand by the creative risks taken to launch such a unique, genre-bending game created by this small but talented and passionate team. 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. After weighing options, we have collectively made the decision to sunset the multiplayer support.
We believe the video game industry needs constant innovation, and we will continue to take risks, follow creative visions, and support new ideas.
To everyone who has played Disintegration: we thank you.“
