Warner Bros. Games and Player First Games provided an update about the fate of the open beta of its fighting game MultiVersus. 

If you didn't even know that the current release of the game was an open beta, I won't blame you. That being said, it's going to be closed on June 25, 2023, with all online modes becoming unavailable and updates getting paused. Only the training room called The Lab and local matches will remain accessible offline to players, who will also be able to use their characters and cosmetics within their modes. 

The closed game modes will remain unavailable until the full release, which the developers are planning for early 2024.

The announcement also came with a video in which Player First Games co-founder and game director Tony Huyin explains the reason behind the decision to close the open beta. 

The Huyin claims that "there is still a lot of work to do" but they claim that they now have a clearer view of the path forward:

"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."

You can check out the video below and read the FAQ, which explains in detail what you can expect from the game before the open beta's closure and in the interim until release. In case you're wondering, refunds for purchases made during the open beta won't be offered.

MultiVersus is currently available for PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC. It's free-to-play with the inevitable optional microtransactions.
