I didn't even realize this game was removed from my Steam library. Bummer.

The game was a UI mess and when I actually played it was an even bigger mess

This is exactly why only online multiplayer games won't last very long. It's important to have a single player campaign (a good one, not a throw-away trash story) or some kind of offline multiplayer mode.

it's doing well on console mostly because xbox gamers haven't had a good game for a few years.

I’ve played some great MP-only titles, so needing a SP isn’t really an issue, so much as it’s the developers needing to make the game good and offer content to keep people coming back.

Hmmm, I think you hit the nail on the head right there.

When it's fighting Mechwarrior Online, another PVP mech game from a franchise with an established fan-base, it couldn't really compete. While MWO does have its issues, it has solid combat with a very generous F2P model, unlike Hawken, which forced you to use a starter mech and then buy every other one.

PUBG does not need a sp campaign. Never let me catch you speaking such rot again.

Hawken was never a very popular game, i think its peak concurrent user count was a little over 8k. There is plenty of other popular old MP games, heck the original Counter Strike has a pretty large user base lol.
