The gamemode was first released in August of last year. Since then, it has gotten several updates, including proximity voice chat. Epic didn’t give a reason for the sudden removal of the mode, but it’s thought that the low number of players was a factor.
It’s likely that in the coming months, a new game mode will take its place. Impostors could also come back in the future as a Limited Time Mode. We’ll keep you updated.
