That as a studio it is now moving on from the struggling multiplayer shooter released last year to "focus on other projects". This won't come as a surprise to those that have kept an eye on LawBreakers, as it's been quite a few months since its peak player count on Steam hit triple figure. Which, for an online title, is a definite red flag.
A sort of cycle that even if someone were to purchase the game right now, they'd struggle to find matches. The official site update
So here is the very real truth, which may not come as a surprise.
The fact is LawBreakers failed to find enough of an audience to generate the funds necessary to keep it sustained in the manner we had originally planned for and anticipated. And while a pivot to free-to-play may seem like easiest change to make, a change of this magnitude takes publishing planning and resources to do it.
So with a switch to free-to-play seemingly ruled out Boss Key does plan to continue supporting LawBrakers. Which probably means, keeping the servers live as it works on whatever the new mysterious project turn out to be.
We will continue to support the game in its current state, but we also need to focus on other projects with fresh creative leaders. We have been working on something new and we can’t wait to share more about it! It’s a passion project that we’re in complete control of.
Interestingly, the phrase 'fresh creative leaders' kind of indicate that the '90s over-the-top shooter tone of LawBreakers will most likely become a thing of the past for the studio as it moves forward.
