Hypernova, the studio behind Mayanagari, has reportedly shut down

Surprising developments!

Hypernova Interactive, the Bangalore-based studio that developed Mayanagari, has reportedly shut down according to reports. The sources close to GamingonPhone confirmed this.

Hypernova’s shut down is attributed to development costs

The info was first shared by Rishi Alwani, an Indian games market analyst, via a post on X. The reason he shared was that the studio couldn’t sustain development costs or secure funding.

However, the co-founder of Hypernova, Mayur Bhimjiyani, has clarified this matter. He has replied that “there is still more to come” to the call from IGN India, which is a skeptical reply given all things considered. Again, this does not answer the heart of the matter.

On top of that, it is also being reported that one of the co-founders has moved to a new project with another development studio, while Hypernova Interactive had to let go of all its employees as part of the shutdown.

Mayanagari promised to be a spectacular Indian-themed gangster game

Well, if you did not know, Mayanagari was promoted to be a GTA-inspired gangster game based in India. Inspired by real-life locations in Bombay and Goa, Mayanagari focuses on an emerging criminal’s rise to becoming the city’s biggest gangster.

The game features the Hindi language, Bollywood-style motion capture cutscenes, and third-person shooter action with five types of weapons. More than ten missions drive the storyline, driving more than 15 various Indian vehicles, and a property management system to buy houses and build up empires.

I still believe we should wait for the official confirmation before concluding since the game is still available for pre-registration on the Google Play Store for Android users. If there is any official confirmation that Mayanagari has shut down, I will be updating this space, so keep an eye on it.
