Warframe developer, Digital Extremes, announced this week that they’d be hitting the pause button their side project, The Amazing Eternals (known for a spell as Keystone).

The game had spent a few months in closed beta, but it would appear that there just wasn’t enough interest in the game. DE had this to say:

We took an honest look at the current gaming landscape and how the game was performing in Closed Beta. Unfortunately, the game wasn’t attracting players fast enough to support a viable matchmaking player base with the current game design direction, which is the lifeblood of this type of game. So, with heavy hearts, we’re taking a step back to reevaluate the design and may revisit our intrepid heroes in the future.

I for one really dug the game’s art style. It’s just unfortunate that DE was unable to sustain a game that was built around it. On a positive note, DE said that they’d be refunding any player who bought a Founder’s Pack. Those will be rolled out over a 72-hour period starting today. Expect a 3-5 day processing period for any of those refunds, and in the meantime, the game will remain live until November 2nd.
