Ratloop Games Canada and Frontier Foundry announced earlier today that Lemnis Gate, the “time looping FPS” from 2021, will be shutting down on July 11th. Leading up to the shutdown the game will be removed from Steam, the PlayStation Store, and the Xbox and Microsoft stores on April 11th.
We want to thank you all for your support with Lemnis Gate, joining us for many incredible rounds in the loop. We’ve truly loved seeing your passion for the game, the mind-bending strategies you created and how you embraced this innovative twist on the FPS genre.
Lemnis Gate has been an ambitious project that we are privileged to have brought to life together, so it’s with sadness that we share this news today.
From April 11 2023, Lemnis Gate will be removed from sale on all platforms. However, we will be keeping the multiplayer servers online so you can all continue to enter the loop until July 11 2023, at which point they will be closed. Console players will still be able to access local multiplayer and training modes, however PC players will be unable to play beyond that point.
We want to thank you all once again for your support and joining us on this journey.
Ratloop Games Canada and Frontier FoundrySteam Announcement – March 09, 2023
The game’s store pages on consoles have also been updated with the following brief announcement, “please be advised that online multiplayer services will be discontinued from 11 July 2023. As such Lemnis Gate will be unavailable for purchase from 11 April 2023”.
Looking at the data we have on SteamDB, Lemnis Gate saw fewer than 100 active daily players just a month after its release. At least from the Steam side the decision to shut it down after less than two years is understandable but regrettable. Thanks to Serrated-banner9 for submitting the news, I’ve added the date to the Watch List calendar and we’ll have a page up on the site later.
