“After more than four years of elemental magic and spell-combining, we have made the decision to stop developing Spellbreak.

Spellbreak was an ambitious project that pushed our team to push boundaries in design and development and we are excited to continue to innovate with new games in the future.”

Studio head Seth Sivak also spoke out. He briefly recounted the path Spellbreak and noticed her strong qualities, among which,for example, a full-fledged cross-play and cross-progress on the release.

According to the boss Proletariat, for all the time the project has touched more than ten million people.
