Following the closure of First Assault servers in Japan, it probably won’t come as much of a surprise to you that Nexon would follow suit. The company announced plans to sunset the game in the North and South Americas, European, and Oceania regions on December 6.

The post — ironically posted by an admin by the name of “Predictable” — states that the reason for discontinuing the game came from the conclusion that “continued development wasn’t going to help the game become what [they] hoped it would become.” As the game won’t be shutting down for a few months, the post also indicates that Nexon plans to continue to support the game during that time, in an effort to give the developers and publishing team time to say goodbye.

As for now, Nexon is closing the game’s shop immediately. No mention has been made regarding refunds for already purchased items.

    This is why I don’t buy EA or founders packs. Makes me laugh how people never learn. The gaming industry is constantly taking you for a ride and you throw money at games and let them do it. Makes me glad I’m tight-fisted.

    We were concerned this might happen, but hot on the heels of the Japanese closure? Woah. O_o

    Now THIS is what makes me cringe and nervous about all the Founder’s Packs and Early Access payment bs….just picture this: you drop some $60+ dollars on some pack or early access key to “help developers with the game” playing it on an unstable alpha / beta version, and all of a sudden, after 3 months, developers/publishers decide to close servers / stop development, cause “game didn’t come to where we thought it would”. And just like that, your 60 dollars went drirfting away…you didn’t sell the game, not even gave it to some friend for their enjoyment, neither put it on a shelf to collect dust till some day nostalgia kicks in, waiting to be downloaded again if it was digital….no, it just went off with the servers and developers shame. Yeah…an amazing bussiness model for sure.
