2020 has marked the lowest point in my 25-year professional history of making games.

After so much positive reaction at Gamescom, PAX, and other hands-on events, we were heartbroken when our game that we put so much effort into building, launched and died almost overnight.

We took big risks and made a genre bending game that was imperfect but had a lot of potential to evolve post launch.

We were already hard at work building so many new features, game improvements, maps, modes, and Crews based on community feedback – it was awesome.

But none of that will ever see the light of day. So, here’s to gladly leaving 2020 behind and looking forward to a much brighter new year with 2021. 

- Marcus Lehto, President of V1 Interactive.

It's sad to see any studio go through this. I hope 2021 turns out to be a much better year for a lot of people, including the folks at V1 Interactive.

That's the vibe.
