Just three months old, Disintegration is already losing its multiplayer modes

Just three months old, Disintegration is already losing its multiplayer modes

Launched just three months ago, Disintegration, V1 Interactive’s combo of first-person shooting and squad-based strategy, is losing all of its multiplayer modes over the coming months. Starting today with the removal of the in-game store, all multiplayer features will be phased out by November 17th. The team’s full announcement follows:

We have made the difficult decision to remove Disintegration’s multiplayer modes from the game across all platforms. This will be done in phases over the coming months, starting today with the removal of the in-game store, and will conclude on November 17th with the full removal of multiplayer. The single player campaign will remain fully playable moving forward.

From both the development team at V1 Interactive and publishing group at Private Division, we stand by the creative risks taken to launch such a unique, genre-bending game created by this small but talented and passionate team. While our player base showed interest in the single player campaign, the game unfortunately struggled to build a significant audience necessary for a compelling multiplayer experience. After weighing options, we have collectively made the decision to sunset the multiplayer support.

We believe the video game industry needs constant innovation, and we will continue to take risks, follow creative visions, and support new ideas.

To everyone who has played Disintegration: we thank you.

-Private Division & V1 Interactive

V1 has provided a brief FAQ page with a few more details including Private Division’s continued support for the single player product going forward. That’s not to say that the game will never be delisted, but as an original property with no obvious licensed content, the game should be safe (if lacking features) for the foreseeable future.

I’ve added the November date for the multiplayer shutdown to the Watch List calendar for now.
