At the time of launch, fans were really hyped for Rumbleverse and it had its share of popularity but the period was really brief. Yes, the game brought in a new take on the battle royale genre, but the market has become so dense, to stand out you have to do much more. It’s rather unfortunate that a game with so much potential has lost its ground this early.
Also, earlier this month Rumbleverse was rated for Nintendo Switch. With this new development, it seems the port has now been shelved. However, it should be noted that this is strictly a rumor for now. Epic Games or Iron Galaxy are yet to give an official statement on the matter. But if the delistings are indeed starting today we may have an announcement soon.
