Automation Games has announced that its CRYENGINE-powered 400-person battle royale game, Mavericks: The Forge, has been cancelled. According to the developers, the game’s development has been ceased due to insufficient funding.
Mavericks: Proving Grounds was a next-generation multiplayer shooter which aimed to feature a massive, tactical, and dynamic world. Automation Games planned to release its 400-person battle royale mode, with the ambition to transition into a massive 1000-player online game.
The final version of the game aimed to feature both the battle-royale and the online MMO modes.
Automation Games has also announced that it is currently in the process of licensing the Deceit game (its previous title that was released in 2017) so there will be no change in the live operation and provision of this game.
From what I know, there aren’t any plans to sell the IP rights to another developer/publisher (and I’m not sure whether anyone is interested in this IP). I’ve also included below the game’s E3 2018 trailer in case weren’t aware of what this game was all about.
