Splitgate remains online as the team moves on to an exciting new project in the Splitgate universe powered by Unreal Engine 5.
1047 Games announced that the upcoming update for Splitgate will be the last major iteration as the development team moves on to their next project, a shooter set in the Splitgate universe.
Splitgate will officially exit beta on September 15th when the next season will launch, which includes a new free Battle Pass with an infinite number of levels featuring new characters, skins and more.
Splitgate was originally released for PC in 2019, with the beta versions for Xbox and PlayStation following in 2021. With more than 18 million downloads, Splitgate is one of the most successful online games in recent years. Its arena shooter mechanics combined with a playful, physics-based game design created an entirely new and immersive shooter genre that resonated with fans around the world.
1047 Games has and will continue to recruit some of the industry’s top talent as the studio turns its attention to a fresh new Splitgate project being built from the ground up in Unreal Engine 5.
“After careful consideration, the 1047 team has decided that we are moving away from iterative, smaller updates and are fully focused on a new game in the Splitgate universe that will bring revolutionary, not just evolutionary, gameplay changes.” explains Ian Proulx, creator of Splitgate and CEO of 1047 Games, to make the game the fans deserve. “Splitgate will remain online and will be supported by our dedicated community, which has been the backbone of our studio since the first playtests on PC. Our community means everything to us and we can’t wait to share the next project with them.”
The weekly playlists in Splitgate will also continue. Fans can also look forward to more item drops. While feature development is complete, Splitgate and its community will continue to be supported to provide fans with the same great experience they have come to love.
