Remember Gearbox Software’s Battleborn? While it was announced that the multiplayer-focused game would have its servers taken down this year way back in 2019, it seems that the title’s single-player will be affected as well once the servers have been taken down.
This was confirmed by the 2K Support page where it tries to clear things up on what can and cannot be done with the game people purchased once servers are offline.
- After February 24, 2020, you will no longer be able to purchase premium virtual currency (“Platinum”) for use in the game.
- The game’s servers will remain active and the game will continue to be playable until January 25, 2021.
- Once servers are deactivated, Battleborn will no longer be playable.
Will I still be able to play Battleborn in any fashion (e.g. the single-player campaign, peer-to-peer games) after the servers go offline?
- No, once the servers are offline on January 25, 2021, Battleborn won’t be playable in any way.
While a multiplayer-focused game not having servers kinda makes it pointless to play, gamers who purchased it should still be allowed to play it in one form or another, no? Mind, not sure if it matters, but if you’re one of the few Battleborn players who check the game out, well, you best do it now, as you have less than a month to do so.
Released back in 2016, Battleborn was a first-person hero shooter that unfortunately got trampled by Overwatch when it was released, and never recovered even if it transitioned to become a free-to-play title just a year after launch.
