Sad news from Automaton Games: the team has ceased the development of their promising battle royale project called Mavericks: Proving Grounds.
“Paul Cooper and Paul Appleton were appointed joint administrators of Automaton Games Limited on 30th July 2019. They are managing the affairs, business and property of the company. The joint administrators act as agents of the company and act without personal liability. Paul Cooper and Paul Appleton are licensed to act as insolvency practitioners in UK by the ICAEW,” states the official website.
“Please be advised that due to insufficient funding, the development of the Mavericks: Proving Grounds game has now ceased. The joint administrators are in the process of licensing the Deceit game so there will be no change in the live operation and provision of this game.”
The announcement is a surprise, to be honest, as Automaton released a new patch and began a new alpha testing session less than a week ago, but it appears that something was wrong at the company.
