The server capacity improvements and bug fixes are not elaborated on, but that’s okay because the new Ranked 2v2 mode is the highlight of this patch. Splitgate has received numerous updates during the open beta period, and the developers have been ramping up server capacity in order to accommodate the insane influx of new players. The game will remain in open beta for the time being as the team continues to make improvements.
1047 Games CEO Ian Proulx said Splitgate will “remain in open beta for the foreseeable future as the small studio continues to scale the popular arena portal shooter that has seen more than 10 million downloads in its first 30 days of open beta.” Splitgate’s concurrent player count skyrocketed from 4,000 to more than 175,000 in just a few weeks of beta, and the game continues to grow and attract more players as time goes on.
