QC Games, the development studio that released Breach just this past January into Steam Early Access, is now shutting down. The announcement came earlier today via a developer update on the Breach website.

Breach was a 4v1 action-RPG. Players could make and customize their own characters with a variety of customizable abilities. These characters would face off against a "Veil Demon" that was either controlled by the AI or by other players. The game was going to transition to being free-to-play once it left Early Access, but it looks like that won't come to pass. The game has been in development for three years and had a $10 "Early Access Pass" that allowed eager beavers to start playing ahead of the jump to F2P. This Early Access release took place on January 17, 2019.

The game never really picked up much momentum in terms of players or sales. It topped out just shy of 1,200 players around its Early Access release. As of right now, there are just 18 people playing the game.

The team offered up their sincere thanks to those players that played and contributed feedback during development.

Thank you.

Thank you for being a part of the Breach community. Thank you for being a part of our Technical Alpha and Early Access stages. Thank you for all the kind words of support and constructive feedback over the months, and thank you for believing in QC Games and Breach.

Unfortunately, today is the last official day for QC Games, as we begin winding down internal operations on Breach. We’re sure you have a lot of questions about Breach, your accounts, and the future of the game. Our team is still working on defining what this means for Breach and for our community, and we’ll post an updated article soon with answers to as many questions as we can cover.

Servers will remain online at this time and we will be turning off the ability to purchase both the Breach Starter Pack and in-game QC Points tomorrow (April 4th) during a maintenance period. Servers will come back online after our Thursday maintenance for those that want to continue to play Breach, and we hope to provide more information soon.
We wish the best to all of the employees at QC Games.
