FPS Gundam Evolution Set To Shut Down In Late November
Bandai Namco released Gundam Evolution, its free to play first-person shooter, on PC via Steam, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 in late 2022. The game allowed players to jump into their mech suits and fight for survival across the battlefield. Unfortunately, the company has announced that the game’s servers will be closed on November 29th, 2023, which comes just one year after its release on consoles.
Via an official press release, the company stated, “We wanted to create a title that brought FPS fans and Gundam fans together. We challenged ourselves to create an authentic Gundam FPS game that could be played globally.
Unfortunately, we have determined that it is no longer possible for us to provide a service that satisfies our players.” Additionally, the developers expressed their gratitude towards the fanbase who played and supported the game.
However, although the servers will be shutting down, the developers will continue to release content for Gundam Evolution, including Season 6 and the final season. Moreover, the company will ensure that players enjoy the game until the very end. Additionally, in Season 6, players can try out two new maps and one new unit while in the final season in October, players will get their hands on one new unit and one new map. Also, after the end of service in November, players will be unable to use any items and EVO coins.
