It would appear that we’ve got more bad news in regards to games shutting down today, this time involving Rumbleverse. Today, Epic Games and the developers at Iron Galaxy announced that Rumbleverse’s servers would be shutting down. The wrestling battle royale will be sunset for the time being in late February 2023.
The sunsetting of Rumbleverse was announced via the official Rumbleverse Twitter and a blog post on its website on January 31, 2023. On Tuesday, February 28, at 8 a.m. PT / 11 a.m. PT, the Rumbleverse servers will shut down and the game will become unplayable online. Refunds will also be issued for players that spent money on the game’s battle pass, Brawlla Bills, and other in-game items and currency.
“Any player who has spent money on Rumbleverse is eligible for a refund of money spent on or in the game,” the blog post reads. “This includes the purchase of a Rumbleverse Battle Pass or Brawlla Bills on any platform. We will share a FAQ page with additional refund information soon.”
Iron Galaxy co-CEO Adam Boyes also shared a statement on the shutting down of Rumbleverse:
It sounds like there may be a door open for Rumbleverse to return, but for the time being, it’s going away at the end of February. We certainly enjoyed the game when we played and will hold out hope for a return. But until then, best get your matches in before Grapital City closes this coming month.

I feel like Iron Galaxy puts out well intentioned games but they bomb
Rumbleverse - flop
Extinction - flop
Wreckateer - flop
I guess their money by being a port house pays the bills though.
