Ubisoft is pulling the plug on free-to-play shooter Hyper Scape

If you and your homies are balls deep into Ubisoft’s free-to-play shooting bonanza called Hyper Scape, you might wanna start looking for an alternative. The French publisher has decided to pull the plug on it, ending its life on April 28. Why? You tell me. Ubisoft clearly isn’t, although reasons are to be assumed.

It should have been the game that could earn Ubisoft a piece of the F2P shooter pie. The very same pie that’s been giving the publishers of Warzone, Fortnite, and Apex Legends type 2 diabetes. But alas, Hyper Scape isn’t meant to be. After no more than two years, a server shutdown is imminent. As to why Hyper Scape is being scraped, Ubisoft doesn’t feel like explaining. All we get is a thank you note and a “we have learned from this”.

We have made the difficult decision to end development of Hyper Scape and shut the game down as of April 28th. We set out to create a vertical, close-quarters, and fast-paced shooter experience and we are extremely grateful to our community for joining us on our journey. We will be taking key learnings from this game into future products.

“To the Hyper Scape community, thank you for your passion and dedication to the world of Neo Arcadia both inside and outside of the game. Your devotion to the game we built will always be cherished.

Such a shame. To end it all after years of development is usually hard on everyone. Anywho, the higher-ups at Ubisoft probably have good reasons to kill the game. In most cases, disappointing performance is the culprit of it all, which it probably is this time around.

So, what did you think of Hyper Scape? Did you even play it? Let us know, will ya?
