DJ Game Fuser to Sunset Live Services

By | December 2, 2022

Harmonix is shutting down live services for Fuser, its two-year-old DJ simulator, on December 19.

On that day, Fuser and its DLC will no longer be available to purchase, according to Harmonix, and those who already own it will be restricted to two game modes: Campaign and Quick Play. The developer stopped releasing new paid DLC for Fuser earlier in 2022.

Fuser is Harmonix’s most recent music game. Players take on the role of a festival DJ trying to conquer the music world.

Using a mixing table, players can mix and match different tracks from popular songs to create original remixes. The game features a full story mode as well as an online competitive mode, but the latter will seemingly be shut down following the sunset.

Harmonix was acquired by Epic Games in November 2021. At the time, the developer said it would “create musical journeys and gameplay for Fortnite,” while continuing to release new DLC for Rock Band 4, which it’s done as recently as December 1.

In the same blog post, Harmonix stated it wasn’t “planning to change the way we support any of our older games,” including Fuser, though plans and priorities, of course, are subject to change.

IGN’s Fuser review called it “the most promising attempt yet to bring back the glory days of social music gaming.”
