Gearbox's team shooter, Battleborn will be no more as of January 2021.

Both 2K games and the Official Twitter account have updated the community. 

Battleborn has been removed from digital storefronts, and we are now in the process of gradually sunsetting the game to focus our efforts and resources on other projects. 

So, what does that mean? At the moment, you won’t see any effect if you own a copy of the game. But there are some things you should be aware of:

  • After February 24, 2020, you will no longer be able to purchase premium virtual currency (“Platinum”) for use in the game.
  • The game’s servers will remain active and the game will continue to be playable until January 2021.
  • Once servers are deactivated, Battleborn will no longer be playable.

Battleborn started its journey in May 2016 on Playstation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One.   A good game in its own regard it met mixed reviews and crashed headlong into the launch of its largest competitor, Overwatch

It's unclear how many players the game currently has. 

Did you play?  Will this affect you?
