Disintegration to Discontinue Multiplayer Services


V1 Interactive and Private Division have announced that their title Disintegration will discontinue multiplayer services after launching in June of this year.

In a recent blogpost, the team behind Disintegration confirmed that multiplayer services will end on November 17th. The closure of services began today with the removal of the in-game store.

“We have made the difficult decision to remove Disintegration’s multiplayer modes from the game across all platforms. This will be done in phases over the coming months, starting today with the removal of the in-game store, and will conclude on November 17th with the full removal of multiplayer. The single player campaign will remain fully playable moving forward.

From both the development team at V1 Interactive and publishing group at Private Division, we stand by the creative risks taken to launch such a unique, genre-bending game created by this small but talented and passionate team. While our player base showed interest in the single player campaign, the game unfortunately struggled to build a significant audience necessary for a compelling multiplayer experience. After weighing options, we have collectively made the decision to sunset the multiplayer support.

We believe the video game industry needs constant innovation, and we will continue to take risks, follow creative visions, and support new ideas.

To everyone who has played Disintegration: we thank you.

-Private Division & V1 Interactive”

According to Steam ChartsDisintegration at the time of publishing has an all-time player record of 539 during a free weekend event but has consistently remained below fifty players since then.

Games that can no longer afford to sustain multiplayer services often leave consumers with nothing to show for their money spent. However the decision of Private Division to discontinue the in-game store immediately sets them apart from publishers that will continue to take customers’ money despite the impending closure.

The single player campaign for Disintegration will remain playable, only multiplayer services will end.
