Developers Tease “True Splitgate Experience”, What’s Coming?

The Splitgate developers went on to state that there aren’t actually any issues with the servers and that the 12-hour outage is planned.

A “true Splitgate experience” was teased for when the servers come back online, with the developers also stating that players should use this time wisely to prepare for what’s to come.

Many fans were likely left confused by the cryptic message from the developers, but it’s actually related to Gamescom’s Opening Night Live event.

1047 Games will participate in the event with their very own presentation, likely revealing something special related to Splitgate.

The servers will be back online 1 hour after Opening Night Live begins, so fans can expect a big announcement followed by the return of the servers, hopefully with something special for fans when they jump back in.

How To Watch Splitgate Announcement

If you’re eager to find out what the big Splitgate announcement is for, you’ll have to watch Gamescom’s Opening Night Live at 11AM PT.

To watch along, simply head to The Game Awards official live stream, which can be found on their YouTube Channel.
