Amazon Is Killing Its First Game ‘Crucible’ Within 6 Months Of Launch


Amazon released Crucible, a free to play third-person shooter game, on May 20, 2020. Now, just a few months after its release, Amazon has decided to pull plugs on Crucible.

Relentless Studios, the developer of Crucible, gave up on the game because it didn’t see any “healthy, sustainable future ahead of Crucible.”

Ever since its initial release, Crucible has struggled to make a decent place for itself in the gaming community. The game only managed to receive average reviews from critics because of some major issues.

This is why, in July, Relentless Studios pulled back the game into Closed Beta. At the time, the developer decided to enhance the game by including a list of features before re-releasing it.

However, even after releasing the improved features in closed beta, Crucible failed to impress the players. That’s why, now, Relentless Studios decided to stop Crucible’s development on November 9, 2020.

“We very much appreciate the way that our fans have rallied around our efforts, and we’ve loved seeing your responses to the changes we’ve made over the last few months, but ultimately we didn’t see a healthy, sustainable future ahead of Crucible,” said Relentless Studios’ team.

Also, after shutting down Crucible, the developers plan to put their efforts on Amazon’s “other upcoming projects.”

If you’ve spent money on Crucible to purchase some in-game credits, then don’t worry, the developer promises full refunds. All you have to do is contact the Steam Support to request a refund. Also, Credit purchases will soon be disabled to stop any further transactions.
