Steam Early Access page
Tohu from Spearhead Games announced on October 3rd, 2018 that Arena: Cyber Evolution would be shut down two weeks later on October 15th. The game had failed to gain enough interest from players and money from investors to continue development. The announcement read:
It is with a heavy heart that I’m writing to let you know that Arena: Cyber Evolution will be shut down on October 15th.
After a bit more than 4 years of existence, with great times and difficult moments, Spearhead Games hasn’t been able to secure the required funding to push this project to its full capabilities and therefore build a realistic plan to release it with the quality level expected by everyone.
We would like to thank the community, everybody who was there and supported us and the game during its development. It was a great project, a unique vision, and a wonderful community experience.
Wishing you all the best,
Tohu from Spearhead Games
The game’s Steam store page and Community Hub remain accessible but the Early Access title can no longer be purchased.
About the Game
“At Spearhead Games, we believe that e-sports are the next step in international competition. We believe that this growing trend is on the verge of becoming mainstream globally and will play a significant role in defining the future of sports.
Arena: Cyber Evolution is the result of our passion for this phenomenon and what it can become.
We know that creating a game that is significant and meaningful on the e-sport scene is no small task and this is why that we have involved the player community since the very beginning of the development, when there were no menus, options, or even textures!
Arena: Cyber Evolution (ACE) is a futuristic physics-based sports game in which players confront each other in 3 vs 3 matches of wits and twitch reflexes.
By featuring a MOBA-like champion logic, ACE brings an unprecedented twist to the sports genre by allowing players to choose from a variety of super-powered heroes and what style of gameplay they prefer to build their own team strategies.
Designed from the ground up around the mouse & keyboard, ACE was not envisioned only as a sport game, but really as a new sport.“
