Amazon to stop developing its free-to-play shooter Crucible

Amazon has announced it has canceled the development of its free-to-play PvPvE shooter Crucible.

Crucible has been canceled by Amazon and it will go offline on November 9.

According to an official statement, the team behind the game will be transitioned to working on the company's New World MMO and other upcoming projects.

Amazon will offer a full refund for any purchases made, and all credit purchases within Crucible have been disabled.

"In the next few weeks we’ll be hosting a final playtest and community celebration, both in-game and in our official Discord," reads the notice.

"After that point, we’ll be disabling matchmaking, although you’ll still be able to play Crucible through the custom games feature. Stay tuned for more information on that event."

The game was released in May, and by June, two of the game's modes were pulled. The game went back into closed beta in July to address feedback and work on planned improvements.
