Ubisoft entered the crowded bitcoin grand piano market yesterday with Hyper Scape, a new first-person shooter, promising a unique twist to the crowded formula. Before its release, the game seemed to have the potential to be a big hit on Twitch, even topping the streaming giant’s most-watched charts on the day it was announced and their technical test first launched live. Unfortunately, the buzz about Ubisoft’s futuristic free gaming game has dropped significantly, as it is now being pulled homeless just a day after it was launched on a console and computer.

Ubisoft had big streaming plans Hyper Scapealso, hoping it could rival the most popular titles on Twitch. Prior to its release, Ubisoft announced that it was working on special Twitch integrations for the game, allowing viewers to decide random events on the map that would temporarily affect the streamer’s active match, such as endless ammo or low gravity.

But given other hit bitcoins in the piano have seen tens of millions of new players in their first weeks on the market, Ubisoft may need to be creative to persuade everyday players and streamers to launch it sooner rather than later. .
