It stated, “This project has been a labor of love to create a new experience in a popular and highly competitive genre for games.” it continued, “If you’ve been a part of that journey, we thank you – whether you jumped into the first playtest after our reveal, or just shot yourself out of the cannon for the first time.”
The dev team announced that any player who has spent money on Rumbleverse is eligible for a refund of money spent on or in the game. This includes purchasing Rumbleverse Battle Pass or Brawlla Bills on any platform.
In addition to refunds, the dev team announced double XP and battle passes granted to all users. The final update is being deployed, and the store is being shut down for players to enjoy the full experience. There will be more live streams to play some games with the developers and let them pull the curtain back to share some behind-the-scenes moments from the creative process that built this city.
