LawBreakers developer Boss Key Productions has finally broken its silence to talk about the game’s future and what’s in store for the studio moving forward.
LawBreakers didn’t exactly have the best start, while it was highly praised by most critics (other than ourselves) it struggled to find its player base and pretty much fell to the wayside. What’s more, Nexon effectively ditching the game was also a pretty big hit. Now, Boss Key have spoken out about the game admitting that it didn’t quite go to plan.
In a post on the game’s website, the company wrote that while the game wasn’t the success they’d hoped for, they’re not abandoning the game.
“The fact is LawBreakers failed to find enough of an audience to generate the funds necessary to keep it sustained in the manner we had originally planned for and anticipated. And while a pivot to free-to-play may seem like easiest change to make, a change of this magnitude takes publishing planning and resources to do it,” read the post.
“The team here has worked hard on this game over the past three and a half years and our studio is determined to give this game the second life it deserves. However, between now and then, we cannot sit idle. We will continue to support the game in its current state, but we also need to focus on other projects with fresh creative leaders. We have been working on something new and we can’t wait to share more about it! It’s a passion project that we’re in complete control of.”
So while Boss Key will continue to support the game which has all of 12 recent players on PC, there’s a high chance that we’ll see another game from Boss Key before LawBreakers can really make a comeback.
