split gate developers 1047 games have announced that they will postpone the full launch of the game to August, although they will be running the open beta in the meantime. However, the advantage is that the delay was caused by a very positive reason, which is that: split gate has been downloaded and played by 2 million players, and the developers need more time to make sure the game is ready for the large community.
The servers have been working overtime after the influx of players came in just 14 days, so it’s understandable that they need more time. The developer notes in a press release that the increase came after flipping the switch to cross-play functionality. “Our team has been blown away by the incredible reception the split gate community has shown us,” said co-founder and chief executive officer Ian Proulx.
“With the precipitous and sudden increase in players trying to access servers, we need to fix a myriad of technical issues associated with this level of insane growth. We’ve worked hard to provide a high-quality game and experience, and our biggest challenge is simply to have enough capacity to serve the entire community.”
Fortunately, the open beta doesn’t mean players won’t get new content, with three new maps arriving this Tuesday.
