Amazon Shuts Down Breakaway
3 April, 2018
News

Amazon has decided to stop the development of its 4v4 fantasy sports game Breakaway after two years. It appears that the studio couldn’t find a perfect way to make things work, so the developers are now moving on.  

The official announcement appeared on Reddit, saying that the team couldn’t make the needed breakthroughs. The team would not return to the project if only a “thunderbolt of inspiration strikes”, but we have to admit that is not a likely scenario. Would it be a good game? We’re not sure, but it’s safe to say that we can expect great things from the team.

We wanted to update you on the development of Breakaway.

Since our last announcement, we have worked to implement community feedback and iterate on Breakaway’s core gameplay. While we have developed many ideas and made a lot of progress, we are also setting a very high bar for ourselves. In spite of our efforts, we didn’t achieve the breakthrough that made the game what we all hoped it could be. After a lot of soul-searching, the team decided to focus on new ideas. As a result, Breakaway is no longer in active development.

We remain exceptionally proud of the team’s work, and feel privileged to have been a part of such a dedicated and enthusiastic community. We will reach out to this channel as soon as we have news to share regarding our new projects, and if a thunderbolt of inspiration strikes that leads us back to Breakaway, you’ll be the first to know.

The Breakaway Team
