It's Official: Amazon Game Studios Puts Breakaway on Hiatus
Amazon Game Studios' first fledgling project is on "indefinite hiatus". The announcement was made earlier today in a brand new post on the Breakaway site. The team will be taking time to "iterate and evolve" the core game play to deliver the experience that players are looking for. How long it will take remains to be seen and the post indicates that the time frame is open-ended.
We wanted to inform you about an important change to our plans for Breakaway.
As you know, Breakaway was in Public Alpha from June to the end of September. It’s thrilling to play and co-design the game with this fantastic community. Your passion is one of the reasons we believe so strongly in Breakaway.
Over the course of the Alpha we received a lot of feedback from you that we’re taking to heart. In order to get it right, we’re letting our team take the time to iterate and evolve Breakaway’s core gameplay to deliver what you’ve asked for. We aren’t sure how long this will take, but we think it’s the right thing to do for the game, and you, the community.
We won’t be hosting Alpha matches during this time, but we still want to hear your ideas for how to improve the game, and we’ll share our ideas for your feedback.
Thanks again for your continued passion!
The Breakaway Team
