Supercell's Rush Wars closes its doors after only a couple months (Update)
Update, November 6, 2019 (12:05 AM ET): After only a couple of months, Supercell is officially closing Rush Wars November 30. According to Supercell, the development team ran into a few roadblocks in determining the future of the game and inevitably decided it was impossible to make it as good as the team hoped.
Here at Supercell, we have extraordinarily high standards for our games. We want to be sure that each game we release will be played for years and remembered forever. Unfortunately, we felt that even if we continued working on Rush Wars, we wouldn’t hit this goal.
In-app purchases have already been disabled, and Rush Wars players have until the end of the month to play the game. At least the company’s other hits like Brawl Stars, Clash of Clans, and Boom Beach are still going strong.
Original article: Less than a year after the release of Brawl Stars, Supercell has released yet another multiplayer strategy game for Android and iOS devices. Rush Wars takes familiar elements from Supercell’s other hit games like Clash of Clans and Boom Beach and combines them in a new way.
For now, Rush Wars has only soft-launched in Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. Click the link below to download the game now in those regions, or try out it out with a VPN.

Will Rush Wars survive soft launch?
