Deathverse: Let it Die launched just over three months ago in September of 2022 but the team has now made the surprising decision to shut it down in July in order to “redevelop” the game. As a free-to-play title you can still jump into Deathverse on Steam, PlayStation 4, or PlayStation 5 and even make in-game purchases for the next month before things are shut down over the Summer. The team’s announcement and timeline of events follows:
Thank you so much for your constant support of DEATHVERSE: LET IT DIE. We are incredibly grateful to everyone who enjoys and enriches the game and its community.
There is no doubt that we experienced some challenges since the launch of our game, particularly with regards to in-game matchmaking and lag. We deeply apologize for these issues that may have caused an inconvenience to our players.
While we have tried various solutions to some degree of success, we have not been able to resolve the underlying problems. As a result, the development and operations teams have made the decision to temporarily suspend the game’s services while we redevelop DEATHVERSE: LET IT DIE.
This was a difficult decision for us to make. However, we believe that re-releasing the game with significant improvements will allow it to be enjoyed by a wider audience as well as our current players. Considering how much time goes into developing a game–and that there’s a finite number of games one can possibly make in a lifetime–it’s impossible to say at this stage whether this is the right choice. But we love this game and are proud to have developed it together as a team. Therefore, we believe this is the best possible decision at this time.
We will be doing our utmost to prepare for the re-release so that our current community can enjoy the game alongside many more new players in the future. We greatly appreciate your understanding and support.
SERVICE SUSPENSION SCHEDULE
We are sad to announce that DEATHVERSE: LET IT DIE will be suspending its services as of 07:00 pm (PDT) on July 18, 2023. All of us in the development team deeply apologize to our loyal players for the sudden notice. We would like to express our sincere gratitude to all of our players for their support, as well as our heartfelt apologies.

Obviously there’s no timetable yet for when the game will return but if they’ve gone to such lengths as to pull it from stores and shut down the servers you can expect it will be offline for the better part of 2023, if not longer. I’ve added the date to the Watch List calendar and we’ll have a page up on the site later. Thanks to HandMaskTar for pointing out the news.
