Area 52′s upcoming free-to-play 16-player space combat game Star Wars: Attack Squadrons has been canceled, the developer has announced.

The developer revealed the information on its official site, stating that development was being ceased so that the team could focus on “other Star Wars game experiences.” The dog fighting game was announced back in December and entered open beta in January. It was set to feature three modes (Free For All, Team Dogfight, and Base Defense) and offer players hundreds of customization options for ”iconic Star Wars ships.”

“We want to thank all of the fans who participated in the closed beta of Star Wars: Attack Squadrons,” the developer wrote. “After much consideration, we have decided to cease development so that we can focus on other
Star Wars game experiences. We truly appreciate the time you spent engaging in the beta.”
