Disintegration Multiplayer Will Be Shut Down In November

Disintegration Private Division

Disintegration, the new sci-fi game by Halo Creative Director Marcus Lehto, was released back in June. The game had some innovative ideas, but unfortunately, it fell short and failed to grow a substantial audience. The game was met with average reviews and wasn’t the money maker the developers thought it would be.

Now, only after three months, developer V1 Interactive announced in a blog post that they will be discontinuing the multiplayer part of the game. Multiplayer won’t be removed instantly, so you can still play online until November 17. However, yesterday the in-game store was removed via a patch. You will still be able to play the single-player portion of Disintegration after November 17 without any trouble.

“We have made the difficult decision to remove Disintegration’s multiplayer modes from the game across all platforms,” V1 Interactive said in the announcement. “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 17 with the full removal of multiplayer. The single-player campaign will remain fully playable moving forward.”

Disintegration was having trouble since the beginning. The reception from its beta wasn’t exactly positive either. Honestly, when I saw the gameplay it felt like a free-to-play game. V1 even held a free weekend so that they could try to revive the player-base. According to Steam Charts, they were able to attract 500+ players, however, by Monday that number dropped to double digits. As of writing this article, zero players are playing this game.

Disintegration is available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. The game takes players 150 years into the future where society has collapsed thanks to climate change. Mankind has transferred their human brains into robots to reduce resource demands. As expected, things have gone south.
