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.
