Multiverse is going offline in June, with a full launch planned for early 2024
The multiverse is an odd case; It’s been available to play for about eight months, but technically, only in an open beta capacity. This long phase of the game’s development has allowed developer Player First Games to gather a lot of information and feedback, and it will soon put all that data to work before a proper, full launch. Hence, the game will be taken offline in a few months time.
Along with the video update above, game director Tony Huynh tells fans that the open beta for Multiverse will end on June 25, 2023. The studio will continue to work on the platform fighter until the planned launch in “early 2024.”
Until June 25, you can continue to play as normal, although there will be no more game updates. After that date, all online functionality will be disabled, but you can continue to play in labs (training mode) and local matches. When the game finally launches for real, your progress and unlocks will continue.
It looks like Player First Games will be working on new characters, maps, and modes, as well as refreshed netcode, matchmaking improvements, and an overhauled progression system.
It’s unusual to have such a long open beta period, and we assumed it would roll into a full launch, but here we are. Hopefully the game will come back next year and make some changes for the better. It always has a lot of potential, so fingers crossed the full game can reach it when it comes down the road.
