Boss Key Productions focusing on new projects after slow start for LawBreakers

Boss Key Productions, developer of online shooter LawBreakers, has announced that the title has “failed to find enough of an audience to generate the funds necessary to keep it sustained”, as stated in an official blog post. The studio will therefore be moving on to focus on other projects, “with fresh creative leaders.”

This isn’t necessarily the end for LawBreakers though, with a hint of a free-to-play future. Eventually. “While a pivot to free-to-play may seem like easiest change to make, a change of this magnitude takes publishing planning and resources to do it,” the blog post states. “The team here has worked hard on this game over the past three and a half years and our studio is determined to give this game the second life it deserves. However, between now and then, we cannot sit idle.”

LawBreakers will continue to be supported in its current form, but a focus on new projects will mean that we will see a fresh game from them before any major updates or a shift to free-to-play. Boss Key has already been working on a new title, so it may not be too long before we see something new from the team: “We have been working on something new and we can’t wait to share more about it! It’s a passion project that we’re in complete control of.”
