MultiVersus will close in June but will return sometime in 2024
Warner Bros. and Player First Games have announced that the open beta version of MultiVersus will stop working in 90 days but will return in 2024.
In a message posted Monday, Player First Games co-founder and game director Tony Huynh said the studio plans to bring the game back in early 2024.
During downtime, all online modes and features of MultiVersus will be unavailable.
Players will have limited offline access to local matches and the game’s training room, including their characters and cosmetic items within these modes, which will carry over to the full game next year.

“Our Open Beta has been an important learning opportunity for us and a springboard to the next phase of MultiVersus”Huynh said.
“We know there is still a lot of work to do. As a result, we have a clearer vision of what we need to focus on, specifically the cadence of content for new characters, maps, and modes to give you more ways to enjoy the game, along with updated netcode and more matchmaking improvements.
“We will also be reworking the progression system based on your feedback and looking for new ways to connect with your friends in the game.
“To do this the right way, we will be closing the MultiVersus open beta on June 25, 2023. As part of this process, we will be pausing updates and taking the game offline as we prepare for the release of MultiVersus, which they are targeting in early 2024”.
Huynh continued: “We know this news may be disappointing, but rest assured that MultiVersus will be back.
“We’ll also make sure all your progress and content sticks around when MultiVersus returns next year, with a variety of new content, features, and modes.”
In an FAQ, Warner said that MultiVersus will be temporarily removed from digital stores and will not be available for download on April 4, 2023.
