Ambitious 1000-player battle royale title Mavericks: Proving Grounds has proven perhaps a little too ambitious. Developer Automaton Games has entered administration (become insolvent) and Maverick: Proving Grounds has been cancelled. 
Ambitious 1000-player battle royale title, Mavericks: Proving Grounds, has had its ‘The Forge’ launch delayed, developer Automaton Games has announced. I’m not going to lie, I wasn’t even aware Mavericks: Proving Grounds was even due to launch in the next few years, let alone in the next few weeks, but hey ho.
If there’s one obvious, but not overly easy method to stand out from the growing throngs of Battle Royale games, it’s upping the ante with an even higher player count. Mavericks: Proving Grounds is the first to take up this challenge, offering a 400-player battle royale game mode.
