Xbox recently 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.

Arkane Austin previously stated Redfall will not be getting anymore updates, however, the official Redfall Twitter account has now stated the game will be getting one final update with Game Update 4.

The update will revamp the Neighborhood and Nest systems, add Single Player Pausing, a new Offline Mode, and more. More details on Game Update 4 will be released soon. 

"Thank you for all your supportive messages," reads the tweet. "We are working to release our final update, Game Update 4, that brings revamped Neighborhood and Nest systems, Single Player Pausing, Offline Mode, and more. We’ll provide additional details soon. Thank you all."

The previously announced DLC for the game was stated to have been cancelled and 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."

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

Leaving the fate of Redfall aside, it is depressing games nowadays need to be updated with offline modes instead of them being the default.

Made by a team, with no experiance at GaaS type games.... that didn't want to make it, but were forced to. Where alot of the studios talent left, as a result. To be fair, the fact that its getting any support at all, is a wonder in of itself. Yesterday I checked steam db, and it said only 40 people were playing it.

Microsoft being the big boss of them all should not have let Bethesda run like a bunch of headless chooks and actually quality control all products before release,

Arkane to take the fall isn't the way to go but bloody zenimax Bethesda's head instead

I Stil don’t understand why didn’t they just port this game to PlayStation n see if it could have at least made some money as it’s not a bad game n if the player count went up then maybe a few more updates n this game could have been a real gem

puts on web dev glasses It's because of how the field is done, instead of a 'placeholder' on the textarea field, it populates it with the 'Add your reply...' text so it's actually filled in when you click reply first of all. I guess they don't expect many people to click reply then reply straight away.

This game will be forever remembered as the game that badly damaged Xbox & Phil Spencer reputation.
When this game was a disaster waiting to happen, Phil Spencer said just don’t worry about how bad it is, just release it on Game Pass, with 0 consideration about how badly it will damage his & Xbox reputation…..This is the CEO of Xbox. No wonder Xbox is in such trouble.

This was a game they were forced to make..... they didnt want to make it, alot of the teams talent then left, and it still went ahead, was released, flopped.... and then they closed down the studio. The thing thats damageing is, phil always says they have a no hands approach, let them do what they want to do..... and lateron we learn that wasnt true. Ontop of that, he did interviews saying he played it and enjoyed it (before it launched as was reviewed). Only to lateron go on and appologies for how bad the game was.

When are we supposed to have learn the off-hand approach to be fake? It this is about studio closure, I don't think the off-hand approach was ever meant to be seen as Xbox relinquishing the ability to make such top level decision. It only meant they would not micromanage studios.

Also the approach doesn't mean studios are shielded from accountability, if anything they are even more accountable for their output.
