    Amazon Game Studios announced on Reddit it has stopped the development of its fantasy sport brawler Breakaway that was first announced at TwitchCon 2016. 

    The development team will now focus on "new ideas," since Breakaway did not reach the breakthrough the team was hoping for.

     

    "Since our last announcement, we have worked to implement community feedback and iterate on Breakaway’s core gameplay," reads the Reddit post from the Breakaway team. "While we have developed many ideas and made a lot of progress, we are also setting a very high bar for ourselves. In spite of our efforts, we didn’t achieve the breakthrough that made the game what we all hoped it could be. After a lot of soul searching, the team decided to focus on new ideas. As a result, Breakaway is no longer in active development.

    "We remain exceptionally proud of the team’s work, and feel privileged to have been a part of such a dedicated and enthusiastic community. We will reach out to this channel as soon as we have news to share regarding our new projects, and if a thunderbolt of inspiration strikes that leads us back to Breakaway, you’ll be the first to know."
