The much-hyped blockbuster video game Lawbreakers from designer Cliff “Cliffy B” Bleszinski of Gears of War fame had only 10 concurrent players at its lowest point last week.
For a multi-million dollar production as big as any Hollywood movie, this is unprecedented.
Lawbreakers dropped to ten users online.
I've never HEARD of anything like this. It doesn't even seem like a bad game. Wow.

As you can see from the picture above, which is Lawbreaker’s current Twitter background photo, the game makers went for a “maximum wokeness” aesthetic.
The full cast of characters looks like the attendants at an antifa rally:
The characters also have backstories furthering SJW oppression-narratives:
Last year, in protest against a North Carolina law which prevented grown men from sharing bathrooms with little girls, Bleszinski gave Lawbreakers “gender-neutral bathrooms.”
Gaming news website Polygon, which was founded by Bleszinski’s brother Tyler Bleszinski, praised the move at the time (without disclosing their conflict of interest).
Shockingly, the game failed.

The game was actually initially well received, but according to reviewers on Steam, Bleszinski’s woke developers killed it.
Presumably to prevent from “fetishizing skill,” Bleszinski increased every character’s health and made them all regenerate health when out of combat. This made it so that rather than the game being a fight to the death, people would just run away to lick their wounds at the first sign of danger.
Both of the top reviews on Steam say the same thing:
YouTuber Mister Metokur asked his followers Monday whether anything can be done to revive the game.
All that time, all that money to create LawBreakers and it's dead. Do you suppose their is any feasible way to salvage it at this point?

“[Make it free to play] and waifus,” was the top response from Million Dollar Prons.

“It wasn’t diverse enough, same sex bath rooms weren’t enough and thus no one bought it as it doesn’t represent them, clearly,” said Billyboyyyiii.

I would suggest they add this dude as a new character:
