Redfall to Get No More Updates, Those Who Purchased DLC Will be Eligible to Get Credit - News

by William D'Angelo , posted on 07 May 2024 / 1,901 Views

Xbox today announced it will be shutting Redfall developer Arkane Austin, Hi-Fi RUSH and The Evil Within developer Tango Gameworks, and Mighty DOOM developer Alpha Dog Studios.

Redfall will not be getting anymore updates as the studio is closing its doors and the November update was the last one it will receive. This does mean the previously announced DLC for the game will not be released.

Anyone who purchased the Hero Pass, the Bite Back Edition, or the premium Bit Back upgrade for the game "will be eligible to receive the value of the upgrade." More details on the "credit program" will be shared here when it becomes available.

The servers for Redfall will remain online, so those interested can continue to play the game.

Redfall released for the Xbox Series X|S, PC, and Xbox Game Pass in May 2023.

The writing has been in the wall for Redfall since it released, but some of Xbox’s recent moves make me questions where the company as a whole is heading.
The purchases of Bethesda and ABK made you think they were widening their content, but now within a year of getting ABK they’re shuttering studios, have no known upcoming Triple AAA games and are releasing some games on Playstation.
They just seem all over the place.

They said they planned to expand their reach with japanese studios ect.... and then closed down the only one they had right? Xbox seems like its just blowing in the wind, its hard to read or take what they say for much.

Waste of money porting this game, thats how bad redfall is. The dlc is a waste of effort, and so its porting it.

you could see that a mile away.... no big surprise. Not worth honoring their words, when it costs so much, for a game that turned out crappy anyways. So yeah... no surprise here.

I'd issue a charge back if I were one of those who bought the DLC.
Luckily, I didnt.

Even with the bad press I wonder if this game might have made at least some money if it was released on PS5 as well since it’s suppose to be an online co-op game but I guess we shall never no as I actually thought it was decent n with a few more updates you can clearly see it would be a decent little gem

They did.... Phil liked the game, and their own people testing it, thought it was decent, or atleast better than critics and players thought. There was a interview after the mess, where they talked about this.

So when they tested it wasn't a buggy affair?

Glitch shenanigans left right and center?

Game was polished as hell?
