Redfall Is Getting A Final Update Despite Arkane Austin Shutdown

The game will receive a final update with new quality-of-life-features.


Arkane Austin's co-op vampire shooter, Redfall, will receive its fourth and final major update soon.

The official Redfall Twitter account posted that Redfall's Game Update 4 is bringing several quality-of-life features to the game. This include revamped Neighborhood and Nest systems, an offline mode, the ability to pause during single-player sessions, and more. The development team didn't say when the update will go live, but will provide more details at a later date.

Earlier this month, Microsoft shut down several of its studios, including Arkane Austin. Xbox executive Matt Booty stated that Redfall's most-recent update was going to be its last one as development comes to a close. However, that doesn't seem to the case anymore. Booty also confirmed that Redfall's servers will remain online.

It seems like Game Update 4 only contains quality-of-life changes, as there's no mention of any additional story content. Those who purchased the premium editions of the game were entitled to two extra playable heroes. After Arkane Austin's closure, however, they were instead promised credits for the undelivered content.

Redfall is available on PC and Xbox Series X|S, as well as Xbox Game Pass. The game is included in a Fanatical bundle (both GameSpot and Fanatical are owned by Fandom) as part of the Supreme Collection.
