Just shy of two years on the market, Lemnis Gate is shutting down. Frontier announced that the turn-based shooter which launched back in August 2021, will be taken off storefronts on 11 April and the servers will be switched off on 11 July 2023.
Console owners of Lemnis Gate will still get to play local multiplayer and access the training grounds, however, due to the PC’s alternate server hosting, no game features will work after 11 July.

Lemnis Gate is quite a unique FPS. Instead of simply running around and shooting stuff, players would enter 1v1 or 2v2 arena matches where each player has 25 seconds to execute an action such as moving or shooting. After 25 seconds, the next round would begin.
Lemnis Gate was one of the first games which was handled by Frontier Publishing. The publishing arm of the company is responsible for games such as Rollercoaster Tycoon 3: Complete Edition, Far: Changing Tides and Deliver Us Mars. However, developer Ratloop worked on the game and signed a deal with Frontier Publishing after Lemnis Gate won “outstanding original game” at the Unreal E3 2019 awards.
The studio released a statement saying:
“We’ve truly loved seeing your passion for the game, the mind-bending strategies you created and how you embraced this innovative twist on the FPS genre. Lemnis Gate has been an ambitious project that we are privileged to have brought to life together, so it’s with sadness that we share this news today. From April 11 2023, Lemnis Gate will be removed from sale on all platforms. However, we will be keeping the multiplayer servers online so you can all continue to enter the loop until July 11 2023, at which point they will be closed. Console players will still be able to access local multiplayer and training modes, however, PC players will be unable to play beyond that point.”
