Might & Magic Showdown shutting down
Might & Magic Showdown, Ubisoft’s faux-tabletop wargame where players can paint their own miniature warmen, will shut down without even leaving early access. Fraser Brown said it was a lovely painting tool handcuffed to a rubbo game, so this isn’t much of a surprise. Ubisoft have already pulled the game from sale and will shut down the servers on July 31st, making the game unplayable. They do at least plan to offer full refunds to everyone who wants one, though do be warned that you’ve only got until the 31st to get your £16 back.
Showdown hit early access in January 2017 and will never properly launch. Ubisoft’s announcement didn’t say why they’re shutting it down, but I’d guess it’s because the game is not good so too few people were buying it.
