Last fall, we heard word that one of Amazon Game Studios’ three announced online titles, Breakaway, was going into development hiatus. That didn’t bode well, and sure enough, the studio finally announced this week that the 4v4 brawler was officially cancelled.
“In spite of our efforts, we didn’t achieve the breakthrough that made the game what we all hoped it could be,” Amazon said. “After a lot of soul searching, the team decided to focus on new ideas. As a result, Breakaway is no longer in active development.”
Interestingly enough, the game studio said left the door open just a crack for a “thunderbolt of inspiration” that might “lead us back to Breakaway.” In the meanwhile, Amazon Game Studios said that it will be focusing on its other titles, such as New World, Crucible, and various unannounced projects.
