In an update that came to its website today, Ubisoft stated that Hyper Scape would be shutting down in April 2022. “We have made this very difficult decision to bring to an end the development of Hyper Scape and shut down the game starting this April 28th, the blog post explains. “Just as we have set out to create an amazing vertical, close-quarters, and fast-paced shooter experience we are extremely happy for our community for joining us on our journey.

Hyper Scape Updates
Indeed, the writing was already placed on the wall in some regards.

That post covered patch notes for the last major update that was revealed in Hyper Scape and, considering the game was less than a year old at that point, The silence from Ubisoft would probably arrive in the months that followed it all.
What went wrong? Probably it was a number factor. While Hyper Scape carried out some intriguing aspects to it, the game came into the battle Royale Space quite late.

While the Battle Royale Frenzy looks to have gotten calm, there was some time when everyone was trying to launch titles in the genre. Games succeeding in a crowded market like that, are expected to stand out from the competition, and hyper Scape didn’t manage to do that just quite well.

Look for the servers of the game to shut down permanently on the 28, or April 2022.
