Active Splitgate dev work ends as team works on new project

And yes, it's set in the Splitgate universe.

Active Splitgate development work will soon end as 1047 Games begins work on its next project, “a shooter set in the Splitgate universe”.

Splitgate will officially move out of beta on Sept. 15 when it launches its next season, which adds a new, free Battle Pass featuring an infinite number of levels with new characters, skins, and more,” the developer said in a press release.

Splitgate has been in beta on PC since 2019, and PlayStation & Xbox since 2021.

“After careful consideration and much deliberation the 1047 team has determined that in order to build the game that fans deserve – and to build it in a way that isn’t trying to retrofit our existing game – we are turning our attention away from iterative, smaller updates and going all-in to focus on a new game in the Splitgate universe which will present revolutionary, not just evolutionary, changes to the gameplay,” said Ian Proulx of 1047 Games.

Splitgate will remain online and supported for our dedicated community who have been the backbone of our studio from our earliest playtests on PC. Our community means everything to us and we can’t wait to share what’s next with them.”

The new project will be developed in Unreal Engine 5.
