Warner Bros. Games has announced that the MultiVersus Open Beta will be closing down in June, having launched last July, roping in more than 20 million players as of August.

“Throughout our Open Beta, we’ve been working hard to build the best gameplay experience, and we appreciate all of the inspiration you’ve given us,” said Tony Huynh, Game Director at developer Player First Games. “Our Open Beta has been an important learning opportunity for us and a stepping stone to the next phase of MultiVersus.”

Huynh adds that “there's still a lot of work to do” in the run up to releasing the full version of MultiVersus, with a focus on “content cadence” for new characters, maps, and mode. Updated netcode and matchmaking improvements are also in the pipeline, as is a rework of the game's progression system.

“To do this the right way, we will be closing the MultiVersus Open Beta on June 25, 2023,” Huynh confirmed in a statement. “As part of this process, we’ll be pausing updates and taking the game offline as we prepare for the launch of MultiVersus, which we are targeting for early 2024.”

With the MultiVersus Open Beta going offline in June, all online modes and features will be unvailable, but there will be “limited” offline access to The Lab (the game's training area) and local matches, as well as access to characters and cosmetic items. Huynh also states that the team is working to ensure that all progress and content carries into the full version of MultiVersus.

The MultiVersus Open Beta is due to go offline from 25th June, with the full game scheduled for release in early 2024. To find out more, you can consult the official FAQ here.

  • So i'm guessing it will be offline for more than 6 months. They will need to drop content as soon as it releases next year though otherwise it will be pointless continuing to work on it.
  • Honestly thought this game was finished and launched already.
  • What a strange decision. What are they adding in the full release that would require it to be offline for half a year? Would it not make more sense to keep it the way it is, generating revenue from microtransactions?
  • I already platinumed it and was over it after the plat. Game was just mediocre overall. Would never go back unless they did add side dlc trophies but even then.. do I want to grind again...
  • That’s a long ass open beta
