LawBreakers will only be a month old by the end of the week, but it appears its future is already set in stone thanks to a content roadmap for Q4 2017 that Cliff Bleszinski and his studio, Boss Key Productions, teased on Twitter recently.
As seen in the image, future content for LawBreakers on the PlayStation 4 and PC will comprise of new maps (Namsan and Gateway), various new features, Boss Leagues, and a new class. And, of course, run-of-the-mill updates will also be rolled out throughout the year. The image does imply that this content will come out sequentially (from left-most image to right), but the game’s Twitter account does also note that video game development and its changing nature is always subject to change.
This announcement comes at a time when LawBreakers isn’t doing particularly well on the PC (and potentially on the PlayStation 4). As stated in a previous article, despite receiving favorable reviews and being introduced to a seemingly receptive market, the game has simply been unable to find a solid foothold. At the time of publishing that earlier piece, the game only had a peak of 354 players within the last 24-hour period and that number has only dropped — albeit marginally — since then.
At the very least, Bleszinski doesn’t seem all too worried about the low numbers and has suggested on at least one occassion that LawBreakers has what it takes to be a major player in the gaming world.
“It’s a marathon not a sprint,” he said in an interview. “I’d rather be the underhyped game that slowly ramps up into something that people adore than something that comes out with way too much hype that there’s a backlash for, which is why I think the Steam reviews are so positive.”
For the time being, however, whether this optimism alludes to better times for the title or is simply blind remains to be seen.
LawBreakers is available via PS4 and PC.
