Epic Games’ free-to-play title Rumbleverse is shutting down at the end of February, as reported by a reliable video game journalist and industry insider Tom Henderson. It has just been 6 months after the game’s release, and apparently, it has not performed up to expectations.
There is still no official announcement confirming this news, but even if it does turn out to be just a rumor, we can’t expect it to change the game’s popularity. Tom Henderson was also asked about the source he mentioned, the delisting will start today, and it will confirm this rumor.
Upon its launch, Rumbleverse was very popular because of its unique battle royal style; melee weapons were used instead of usual firearms and grenades. This concept, however, didn’t last long because other competitive games like Call of Duty, Fortnite, PUBG, and many other huge titles had already made their mark as some of the best battle royales.
Recently, Rumbleverse was also rated in Taiwan, due to which it was announced to release on Nintendo Switch, but unfortunately, it’s not likely if the reports turn out to be accurate.
