Remember Might & Magic Showdown, the tactical PvP arena combat game featuring virtual figurines and set within the Might & Magic franchise, which was announced at the beginning of the year and has been available on Steam Early Access since then? Well, that title is never going to see the light of day. Regrettably, Ubisoft has informed fans that the game’s servers will shut down on July 31, 2017 and the project’s development will be discontinued.
Might & Magic Showdown has been immediately removed from Steam Store, but those who already own it will be able to play it until the end of the month. Note that Ubisoft is offering full refunds to Early Access players until July 31, 2017, but you need to specifically ask for that – here’s how do to it.
The official statement doesn’t mention the reason behind the decision to cancel Might & Magic Showdown, but that becomes pretty obvious when you look at the game’s stats on SteamSpy. Might & Magic Showdown has only got about 3,000 owners and the peak number of concurrent players yesterday was… 3. Not a great score for a multiplayer-focused title. It seems that players didn’t really like the tactical combat take on the famous RPG series. Let’s hope another iteration of the Might & Magic series will fare better.
