Hyper Scape, Ubisoft’s free-to-play first-person shooter battle royale game, is on its last legs.

The developer revealed the somber news in a short post on the game’s official website today, one that confirms the game’s servers are going to be shut down in just 90 days. April 28 is the final day that Hyper Scape’s servers will be live.

“We set out to create a vertical, close-quarters, and fast-paced shooter experience and we are extremely grateful to our community for joining us on our journey,” Hyper Scape’s developers wrote. “We will be taking key learnings from this game into future products.”

“To the Hyper Scape community, thank you for your passion and dedication to the world of Neo Arcadia both inside and outside of the game. Your devotion to the game we built will always be cherished.”

Hyper Scape is described as a “futuristic urban battle royale” title in which players compete against one another with hacks (special abilities) and weapons in a metaverse location called Neo Arcadia. Unlike other popular battle royale games that try to force players closer to one another with a shrinking circle, Hyper Scape deletes random sections over the course of a match.

Hyper Scape was only released on August 11, 2020, for PC, PlayStation, and Xbox platforms, which means that the game wasn’t even able to last two years before Ubisoft decided to pull the plug.
