In advance of a full release planned for early 2024, Warner Bros. Games is ending the open beta for MultiVersus. On June 25th, the free-to-play, Super Smash Bros.-style brawler with a WB theme will shut down its open beta.
You can still utilize any unlocked characters and in-game cosmetics in the game’s training room and local matches while MultiVersus is offline. (You must download the game from digital marketplaces before April 4th if you wish to experiment with the offline capabilities.)
When the game relaunches in 2024, any advancement you have achieved will remain intact. But, a FAQ page states that you won’t be able to collect refunds as a result of the closure, which may be upsetting for gamers who paid money for a game that they won’t be able to access online for months.
Due to the open beta, Tony Huynh, CEO and co-founder of MultiVersus creator Player First Games, wrote in a blog post, “We have a clearer view of what we need to focus on, specifically the content cadence of new characters, maps, and modes to give you more ways to enjoy the game, along with updated netcode and more matchmaking improvements.”
“We’ll also be reworking the progression system based on your feedback and looking at new ways for you to connect with your friends in the game.”

Although MultiVersus was initially fairly well-liked when it was launched in July 2022, its player base has since drastically decreased. Although it’s hoped that the time spent offline would provide the creators some breathing room to create a more engaging game, Player First Games has a difficult battle given how recent live service games have fared.
