Publisher will release final Switch update following dissolution of Lab Zero Games on October 13.
505 Games, publisher of Lab Zero Games-developed RPG Indivisible, has issued an official statement regarding the dissolution of Lab Zero Games and what it means for the future of Indivisble updates and downloadable content.
Here’s a summary:
An update for the Switch version is due out on October 13, which will add Razmi’s Challenges, New Game+, and Couch Co-Op, bringing all platforms to the same level of development.
Previously planned guest characters and backer-created characters will no longer be added to the game. The dissolution of Lab Zero means there will be no future development on Indivisible.
505 Games took over backer fulfillment to ensure fans would get their physical rewards, and is paying to produce the Ajna / Heruka statues which are about to enter production.
Indivisible will still be available physically and digitally where available. The Switch version will not be released physically in North America.
505 Games’ full statement:
What about guest characters?
We understand that longtime players have been waiting for guest characters as well as some backer-created characters. Regretfully, this additional content will not be added to the game. The IP holder for at least one of the guest characters has backed out and we expect more will follow. The dissolution of Lab Zero means there will be no future development on Indivisible.
What is up with the Ajna Statue for backers?
The sole remaining physical IndieGoGo Backer reward is the Ajna / Heruka statue. To support the Backer community, 505 Games took over this responsibility to ensure fans would get their physical rewards. 505 is paying to produce the statues which are about to enter into production. We will post information about the availability of this reward in due course.
Is the game being removed from Steam, PlayStation, Xbox, etc.?
The game will continue to be available for purchase digitally on all current platforms. Physical versions of the game are still available for PS4 and Xbox One in all regions. Physical versions of the game for Switch are only available in Europe and Japan.
Will the North American physical version of the game be released?
For now, the North American physical release of Indivisible has been cancelled. Initially the North American version was delayed due to the impact of the pandemic. However, with most North American players opting to purchase digitally and the current situation with Lab Zero, it is no longer feasible to produce this version of the game.
Players who have pre-ordered a North American physical version of the game should contact their retailer for a refund.
My backer code doesn’t work / I didn’t get my digital reward, what do I do?
Lab Zero is responsible for all digital Indiegogo rewards and backer issues (except for the Statues and physical versions of the game). Please contact them directly at email@example.com. Please be aware that given their current situation, they may not be able to reply.
I never got my physical game as an Indiegogo Backer, what do I do?
