LawBreakers’ Publisher Blames PUBG For Game’s Failure & That They Are Done Supporting It

A sad outcome for Cliffy B's anti-grav shooter

Anti-gravity hero shooter LawBreakers seems to have met its end as publisher Nexon indicates in an investor Q&A.

As reported by PCGamesN, a recent discussion with their investors detailed that LawBreakers commercial failure resulted in an overall loss for the company. Its lack of carving out its own mark in the heart of gamers is being blamed on popular multiplayer only game PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds being released around the same time.

Nexon CFO Shiro Uemura via PCGamesN:

“Our results in North America in the third quarter were below our outlook, mainly due to the sales from Lawbreakers being below our expectations. Lawbreakers is a unique FPS developed for core users. We had very high expectations for its launch; however, the timing of its launch turned out to be unfortunate, specifically the blockbuster PC online game PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds came out right about the same time, making the market environment very tough for first-person shooters in general and for Lawbreakers.”

This loss has made them decide that further support of the game would not be beneficial as the online-only game has had continuously dwindling player numbers. With all this being said do not expect any form of an update for LawBreakers anytime soon (if not at all).
