Clash Mini discontinues development, server shut down to begin in late April 2024

Supercell has officially confirmed that their strategy board game Clash Mini will be having its development discontinued, with the server scheduled to shut down in late April 2024. In their announcement post, the team mentions that Clash Mini was “a good game but not the game that would ultimately fulfill our dream”.

The developers cite ‘quality concerns’ as the reason behind Clash Mini’s demise

Clash Mini was set in the Clash Universe which was announced along with two other titles namely Clash Quest and Clash Heroes. The game featured elements called miniatures or minis inspired by characters who are already a part of the Clash Universe, in popular titles Clash of Clans and Clash Royale. We get to be involved in a real-time auto battler by strategically placing our minis on the playing board.

I tried my hands on the game during the UK regional launch and it was fun, and enjoyed it, as did many other players, the development team held a contrasting view. Despite the improvements to the game and community involvement, the game did not fully meet the quality standards of the team, as confirmed by them, and ultimately had to suffer a demise even without getting a full-fledged global release. 

However, I have some good news to share. Despite ending Clash Mini the team acknowledges its potential and has decided to commit to bringing the Clash Mini experience to Clash Royale to reach its fullest potential. Well, not sure how they will do it, but hopefully it doesn’t spoil the Clash Royale experience.

For now, if you have purchased any in-game items from Clash Mini, you can transfer those to any live Supercell game before the shut down of the server.

Clash Mini joins Supercell’s long list of mobile game shut downs

Well, Clash Mini becomes the latest to join the list of games Supercell has shut down or discontinued its development, including Rush WarsEverdaleClash QuestBoom Beach Frontlines, and Floodrush, which was within three months of its announcement. Well, what is more upsetting is that Clash Mini was one of the three games in the pipeline for a 2024 launch, as confirmed by CEO Ilkka Paananen.

Now we do have Squad Busters and monster-hunting action RPG in the development stage, and what is scaring me is that news regarding them being released has been due for a long time now, although the updates on the latter are still being shared. But if you were to ask my opinion, these have higher potential than the rest of them, and hopefully, they don’t meet the same fate as the rest.
