Ubisoft has announced that its mobile game, Tom Clancy’s Elite SquadIt will shut down on October 4, 13 months after it was first launched.

The news was announced on the game’s official site with the caption “The Story Ends”, which suggested that there would be no new content after this week’s update.

The blog post explained that the game was “no longer sustainable” despite the development team investigating several ways to keep it going. “We want to assure you all that we really gave it our best, especially with a big update like Season 2, and it was a truly rewarding experience working with our passionate community!” The team explained that they hoped the players would enjoy the game as much as “we enjoyed making the game”.

Ubisoft announced the first Tom Clancy’s Elite Squad With the game pitting characters from various Tom Clancy franchises in real-time 5v5 battles at E3 2019. Back in March, its biggest update, Elite Squad Season 2, saw substantial changes to its grid-based combat system as well as changes to character abilities.
