Hunt: Showdown Won’t Work on PS4 or Xbox One From August

It was recently revealed by Crytek that an impending upgrade to CryEngine – which was the engine used to build Hunt: Showdown – will take the extraction shooter offline on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One from August 15, 2024. Once this update has been applied, the game won’t even load on PlayStation 4 or Xbox One consoles – but it’s not all bad news.

Upgrade for Free

Those impacted by the shutdown will be able to update to the next-generation version of Hunt: Showdown for free, Crytek revealed. In a video posted online to celebrate the upcoming upgrade, it was said that player accounts and all entitlements for Hunt: Showdown will port across from the older version of the game with ease:

Your player accounts and entitlements to Hunt: Showdown and all related DLCs carry up to the new version at no additional cost when you’re ready to make the hardware transition.

It has been promised that a ‘new era’ of Hunt: Showdown will emerge in the summer with the arrival of CryEngine 5.11. For this ‘new generation’ of Hunt: Showdown, the team is working intensively on the game’s anti-cheat system, a new user interface, a recruitment and prestige system, and tweaks to the game’s Hunter mechanics.

There’s an inbound overhaul for the game’s core map, which will incorporate new locations and fresh threats – but only on the next-generation version of the game.

  1. Wasn’t Crytek up for sale? Did Tencent buy them? Heard rumors on Ryse 2 any news on that?
