Amazon’s Crucible is “Unreleasing” and Going Back to Closed Beta

Is this a sign of things to come for Amazon Game Studios? The free-to-play title, Crucible from Relentless Studios, has been sent to a closed beta testing stage and has been “unreleased” from Steam.

Amazon’s Crucible, a team-based shooter, has been returned to closed beta status.

The move follows an underwhelming performance for the game, which released 20th May.

Due to it being in closed beta stages, new players will not be able to sign up for and play the game. However, if and when it does leave closed beta, new players can sign-up via Crucible‘s website.

Developers Relentless Studios says it will still stick it its development roadmap. However, Relentless will now consider feedback from “beta players” (aka, the regular players before this move).

One reason for the unreleasing is due to underwhelming performance. PC Gamer noted how the game’s stats on Steam Charts was a mere 146 concurrent players. Upon further analysis, the game has, within the past seven days, struggled to reach 180 daily players.

And when you consider this is a free-to-play, team-based shooter in the vein of Overwatch, that is poor. Especially when you remember that it’s only one month old at this point.

Watch this space for when, or rather if, Crucible will ever see the light of day again.
