LawBreakers PS4 PlayStation

After LawBreakers developer Boss Key Productions shut down following the game's poor performance, it was thought that would be the end of the gravity-defying FPS. So traumatic was the entire ordeal that Cliff Blezinski, studio founder of Gears of War fame, swore off making video games for good. Now, years later, fans have managed to resurrect servers, even getting the much-coveted nod of approval from Cliffy B himself for keeping the dream alive.

As reported by Eurogamer, this revival is not an official release and is not associated with either the now-defunct Boss Key or then-publisher Nexon. Called The RELB Project, successful playtests were held over the weekend, helped in part by Blezinki's Twitter boost.

Further playtests have been scheduled, and RELB's stated aims for the project are modest: "This is just a project to make LB playable for (hopefully) forever, this is not intended to take over LB, no new updates (at most balancing but that's already unlikely) will be made."

Are you surprised to see LawBreakers resurface? Something must be in the planet and moon's alignment; Ratchet & Clank 2016 just got an update with a new weapon added. Could this project eventually result in a monied interest resurrecting the lost hero-shooter? Let us know in the comments section below.
