Amazon Engage The Plug On Its First AAA game, 'Crucible'

Earlier this year Amazon tried to make a splash with its first AAA title, a free-to-play shot named Crucible which was initially declared in 2016.

The multiplayer game launched in May but quickly returned to beta status since programmers cut down the available modes and said they were adding polish.

Now the team published a blog article stating that after assessing feedback from the closed beta they have decided to discontinue development entirely.

All in-game purchases will be refunded, and the staff is apparently transitioning to other endeavors in Amazon Games including New World.

There’ll be a last playtest and community celebration event before matchmaking is disabled, and after that players will only have access to custom games before the servers shut down at 3PM ET on November 9th.

Amazon tried to do battle with important games such as Call of Duty, Valorant and Overwatch but ultimately came up short. Now we are going to be watching to see what happens with its following projects and whether those have a similarly short window to locate their footing.
