The Halo/­Por­tal-inspired shoot­er Split­gate is cur­rent­ly rid­ing high, as a rather larg­er amount of play­ers have come to the game dur­ing its ongo­ing beta test. The open beta launched back in July and has already been down­loaded an astound­ing 10 mil­lion times. How­ev­er, this came with some setbacks.

Devel­op­er 1047 Games announced it’s going to keep the game in the open beta phase “for the fore­see­able future.” Split­gate’s cur­rent bat­tle pass will end on August 24th, so play­ers only have a few days to get those items.

1047 Games did not announce when the beta will end, but the game’s full release is def­i­nite­ly being delayed. Accord­ing to their press announce­ment, the stu­dio acknowl­edged that adding more serv­er capac­i­ty was not going to be enough; its scal­a­bil­i­ty issues require a greater fix. The devel­op­er teased more news to come at Gamescom on August 25th, so stay tuned.

The stu­dio planned to launch the 1.0 ver­sion of Split­gate at the end of August, but the mas­sive influx of peo­ple and sub­se­quent stress on the servers led 1047 Games to make the unfor­tu­nate deci­sion to delay the game. 

While the full release will like­ly be a while out, you can still try Split­gate’s beta right now for free on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and PC. 1047 Games also said they work­ing on upgrades for cur­rent-gen consoles.
