Gundam Evolution: A Farewell to Shooting Stars 🚀

Gundam Evolution

It’s with heavy hearts and a twinge of nostalgia that we announce the upcoming closure of Gundam Evolution, the free-to-play multiplayer shooter that graced PC, PlayStation, and Xbox. As of November, our beloved game will fade into the digital abyss. But fret not, dear gamers, for this farewell is filled with appreciation and fond memories.

Gundam Evolution presents a team-based shooter experience, pitting six powerful mobile suits against six formidable opponents in thrilling objective-focused matches. Think of it as an Overwatch-inspired Gundam extravaganza, where iconic characters are replaced by awe-inspiring mobile suits. These metallic marvels have been plucked from the realms of Gundam anime, manga, and video games, bringing to life their signature weapons and powers. And let’s not forget the monetization gems of an in-game battle pass and loot boxes, unraveling tantalizing rarities.

But alas, the time has come to close this chapter of multiplayer battles. Bandai Namco, the ingenious minds behind Gundam Evolution, express their deepest gratitude to each and every player who joined this cosmic combat adventure. Sadly, the future of development couldn’t soar to heights that would bring everlasting joy to our loyal warriors.

Fear not, valiant pilots, for there is still joy to be had in these final months. Season 6, commencing on August 23, and the glorious final season, beginning October 25, will shower you with updates. Brace yourselves for the arrival of a new mighty Gundam mobile suit in each update, along with the unveiling of two magnificent maps. We want you to savor every moment and relish in the full splendor of Gundam Evolution till the very end.

Before we part ways, we invite you to join us on July 21 for an epic Mission Briefing livestream at 11:00 PM PT. We will lay out all the remaining plans and discuss what lies beyond the horizon for Gundam Evolution.

On behalf of the development team at Bandai Namco Online, we offer our sincerest apologies. Though we may not delve into the depths of our emotions or decipher what went awry, our gratitude overflows for all who embarked on this meteoric journey with us. It’s no easy feat to say goodbye to a game that hasn’t even celebrated its first birthday, but sometimes, the stars align differently.

The signs were there for those who sought them out. Steam’s player count for Gundam Evolution dwindled from a mighty 56,000 down to a humble 2,000 within a mere two months. Mixed reviews echoed through the universe, steering criticisms toward matchmaking, balance, tardy updates, and the occasional bout of uncharitable monetization. Acquiring new mobile suits, the epitome of power in our beloved game, proved to be a laborious task without the aid of real-world currency. Alas, the window of opportunity to uplift Gundam Evolution has passed.

But remember, it’s not a goodbye forever. Until that fateful day in November, you can still immerse yourself in the captivating world of Gundam Evolution on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S. Seize this final opportunity to leave your mark on the celestial battlegrounds!

May the shooting stars guide you, dear pilots. Farewell, Gundam Evolution. 🚀
