Disintegration has been updated to version 1.06 on PS4 and the patch notes confirm that this update has removed the multiplayer from the game.
Disintegration was developed by V1 Interactive, the new 30-person independent development studio founded by Marcus Lehto, the co-creator of Halo. While the game received a lot of press before its release, it failed to gather a large enough population on PC and consoles. It currently has just 133 reviews on Steam which are averaging out a Mixed reaction.
Disintegration developers had shared an update confirming that they will be removing the multiplayer from the game in an update. We can confirm that the Disintegration update 1.06 which is out now on PS4 has removed the multiplayer.
When the developers originally announced the removal of the multiplayer, they explained that while the single-player campaign will remain intact, the multiplayer mode will be removed in phases.
“While our player base showed interest in the single player campaign, the game unfortunately struggled to build a significant audience necessary for a compelling multiplayer experience. After weighing options, we have collectively made the decision to sunset the multiplayer support.”
Disintegration is available for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. It is still possible to purchase the game despite the removal of the multiplayer so if you are interested in its single-player, the game will remain playable on all platforms.
