Disintegration Set to Remove Multiplayer on November 17
Disintegration is starting the process to shut down multiplayer today. The entire mode will be gone on November 17, so get your final games in soon.
Disintegration is a sci-fi first-person shooter from one of the co-creators of Halo. The game launched this summer to middling reviews and never really picked up steam with players. That said, it did do a few interesting things that had some wanting to see the multiplayer built out even more. However, that will soon be an impossibility as the team at Private Division is now removing multiplayer from the game. It will happen in phases, but everything will be gone by November 17.

It really is too bad to see the game ultimately fail as a multiplayer title. Our own Cam Hawkins called it “engagingly addictive” in his review, and the team’s strive for innovation is undoubtedly a good thing. After all, without teams trying to push the genre forward in various ways, we wouldn’t get games like Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds. That said, they can’t all be genre-changing leaps forward.
Fortunately for anyone still interested, the single-player side of Disintegration will still be available. Of course, our review called that the weakest part of the game, so it’s far from a perfect option. However, you do still have a little time to check out multiplayer. As mentioned above, the team is taking things down in stages. So, the in-game store is going away today, but the whole thing won’t be gone until November.
Disintegration is available now on PC, PS4, and Xbox One. At this point, it seems incredibly unlikely that Private Division would bring the game to PS5 and Xbox Series X, but you never know.
