United Front Games is politely returning money to disenchanted Smash + Grab’bers.
Smash + Grab dropped off Steam yesterday amid rumours of the closure of United Front Games.
Although there’s nonetheless been no official assertion it seems like that was true, as particular person workers have opened up about it on social media (right here’s RPS with a couple of examples). The comparatively excellent news is no matter is occurring on the Canadian studio it doesn’t appear to be a sudden, dramatic monetary implosion, as a result of the studio is providing full refunds to all those that bought Smash + Grab.
In defiance of the platform’s ordinary refund coverage, an announcement on Steam confirms all gamers are eligible for a refund no matter time spent taking part in, which is a pleasant gesture. It additionally confirms that United Front Games “will not be doing any further development or support”, although.
It’s all a bit unhappy, isn’t it. Sleeping Dogs was under-appreciated, Triad Wars by no means went dwell, and now there goes Smash + Grab in its infancy regardless of some attention-grabbing concepts. Fingers crossed having the funds at hand again to disenchanted gamers means United Front Games was in a position to take care of its workers quite than having to depart them excessive and dry, as occurs all too usually on this business.
Good luck and greatest needs to everybody at United Front Games.
