LawBreakers developer moving onto new projects following poor performance

Boss Key Productions has announced it will now focus on new projects following the disappointing performance of LawBreakers.

Having launched for PS4 and PC in August 2017, the hero shooter has failed to find an audience on either platform, and thus further support has been pulled for the time being.

Writing on the official website, Boss Key Productions revealed the “very real truth” regarding the current state of LawBreakers.

“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.”

The statement continues with Boss Key saying it hopes to give LawBreakers “the second life it deserves” but until then must shift focus to other efforts.

At the time of writing LawBreakers has less than 10 concurrent players on Steam, which isn’t enough to fill a single match. Its state on PS4 is unclear.

With any luck, LawBreakers will find a second lease of life as it’s a solid shooter in its own right:

“It doesn’t have the colourful personality of Overwatch, but give Lawbreakers a chance. Get beyond the steep learning curve and you’ll find a team-based shooter packed with smart ideas and interesting mechanics.” wrote Stuart Andrews in his 8/10 review.
