Gauntlet: Slayer Edition Unlikely to Receive Further Updates

Arrowhead Game Studios has announced that its partnership with Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment on Gauntlet games is coming to an end, due to which the developer is unlikely to release any further updates to the games. The arcade classic was first released for the PC last year, and only recently released as Gauntlet: Slayer Edition for the PlayStation 4. Arrowhead wrote in a blog post that it will still be available to chat with players and answer questions, however, issues should be reported directly to the Warner Bros. support team.

While it has been great working with Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, the development phase and our time together is now drawing to a close and Arrowhead’s involvement with the support of the game will come to an end. This means we likely will not release any more patches for the game. If anything were to ever change in the future we will of course keep the Gauntlet community updated.

Frogwing and ForeverAPeon from Arrowhead will still be available in the forums to chat and answer questions (and always on our brand new website of course!), but we ask all of you to continue to report any issues with a ticket to Warner Bros. Support, found here, so that they can keep up to date with the current status.

We thank every single one of you for supporting us along this journey. It has been an incredible experience to work on one of our childhood favorite games and so much fun remaking this classic. We can only hope that you have enjoyed playing as well, and will continue having fun with friends for a long time to come.

PSLS’ Jowi found the game to be an excellent cooperative multiplayer experience, but a little repetitive. You can read his review in full here.
