Knockout City will be phased out after just two years, and the developers have announced that they are considering pulling the plug.
The developers have announced the conclusion of Knockout City, which was initially released in May 2021.
The remainder of the championship will be the last that Knockout City will ever have. The move to a free-to-play model in June 2022 did nothing to help the dodgeball title that was originally released via the EA Originals program.
After Season 9, Knockout City's servers will be taken offline, according to Game Director Jeremy Russo, who praised his staff's hard work and dedication until the end. Velan Studios, an independent and small studio, understands that live service games are not an option.
Season 9 will start on February 28, 2023 and will last 12 weeks. There should be a final event before the servers go offline. Until then, there should be six more events that will introduce new twists in terms of playlists.
If you want to continue playing Knockout City after the official conclusion of the server, there is still reason to be optimistic. Velan is working on a technique to establish private servers that would be accessible via a standalone PC download, which would then allow players to host friends and other players.
