We appear to be doubling up on Hi-Rez news today. First Realm Royale goes into Early Access on Steam, now evidently Hand of the Gods seems to basically be done, so says Hi-Rez’s president in a recent tweet.
We have been working on and off on a nice bug fix patch to come out sometime soon. But no major content updates on the schedule. Servers will stay up as long as we have enough people wanting to play.

Basically, it seems as though development of the game has slowed to a halt, but Hi-Rez is at least willing to keep the lights on for anyone willing to play the game as long as they exist.
The game didn’t exactly hit the ground running, which is likely due in part to the recent rise of Battle Royale, which has been taking the world by storm.
