As a free-to-play multiplayer title, once the game’s servers are shut down next April Guns Up! will no longer be playable in any form. The brief message was posted to the game’s homepage and PlayStation Store page, on Steam, and on Twitter:

Enjoy and thank you for the support!Guns Up! Announcement – October 14, 2022
Originally planned to hit PlayStation 3 and Vita as well, the game launched exclusively on PlayStation 4 back in 2015 and then on Steam in 2018. A mobile spin-off launched just last year on Android and iOS and is not affected by the console and PC shutdown. Thanks to everyone who pointed out the news. I’ve added the date to the Watch List calendar and will have a page up on the site later.
