Starlink Sales Disappointed, Won’t Release New Toys

The toys-to-life business has proven quite hard to manage, with very few exceptions like Nintendo’s Amiibo.

Anyway, many failed, like Disney Infinity and Skylanders, and now we have yet another name to add into that list.

That name is Starlink: Battle for Atlas, as Ubisoft has announced sales were not good enough to grant the production of other toys.

“Despite the immense and continuous support from our players, the sales for Starlink: Battle for Atlas fell below expectations,” said the developer and publisher in a blog post.

“Consequently, we recently made the decision to not release any additional physical toys for the Spring update and in the future.”

The software update won’t stop for the foreseeable future, anyway, as more content is planned for the next few months.

“As part of our effort to do right by our passionate and dedicated community we are currently hard at work on our biggest update to the game so far and are pleased to tell all of you that there will be new digital ships, pilots and weapons to collect.

Additionally, there will be a ton of free content to expand your games such as additional missions, challenges and new activities to engage in throughout Atlas, including content that was inspired by community suggestions, such as Outlaw Racing.”

Starlink: Battle for Atlas is now available for PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. The Switch version even came with a Starfox partnership thanks to a deal with Nintendo.
