Gundam Evolution shutting down

Gundam Evolution Is Shutting Down In November

Gundam Evolution, the competitive multiplayer title set within the popular Gundam universe, is shutting down.

Despite launching less than a year ago in September 2022, executive producer Kazuya Maruyama shared in a blog post that support for the game will be winding down, though he doesn't provide any specifics as to why.  

“We wanted to create a title that brought FPS fans and Gundam fans together," Maruyama writes. "We challenged ourselves to create an authentic Gundam FPS game that could be played globally. Unfortunately, we have determined that it is no longer possible for us to provide a service that satisfies our players.”

A livestream detailing the sunsetting roadmap will air tomorrow, July 21 at 11 p.m. PT. Gundam Evolution’s services officially end on November 29. Until then, Maruyama states that it will still receive updates. Season 6 arrives on August 23, and the final season hits on October 25. Both seasons will introduce a new unit and maps. 

Today, the following services will be suspended:

  • Ending sales of EVO Coins
  • Ending sales of EC Pod Limited
  • Ending updates to EC Pods, CAP Pods, and Ticket Pods

Gundam Evolution was announced at a PlayStation State of Play in March 2022. The FPS title lets players suit up as their favorite mobile suits to battle in 6v6 matches across various game modes. Unfortunately, it now joins the growing list of multiplayer titles that closed their doors this year, which includes Final Fantasy VII: The First SoldierBabylon's FallRumbleverse, Apex Legends Mobile, and Knockout City.
