Nexon Shutting Down Sudden Attack 2 Just Months After Launch
Sudden Attack is still going strong for Nexon, especially in Korea, but the sequel stumbled out of the gate and is already on its deathbed. It launched in Korea on July 6 and will be fully shut down on Sept. 29.
As reported by Steparu, Developer GameHi terminated its contract with Nexon, which is problematic enough. On top of that, the two lead female characters were apparently "appropriated" by various elements of the fan base for, shall we say, less than family-friendly portraits -- which I'm sure came as a complete shock to the developers when you look at how one of them is shown off in the launch trailer, above. As a result, the characters were outright deleted from the game.
Sudden Attack 2 looked like it had some decent ideas and solid production values, and might have been a worthwhile port to Western countries, but it doesn't look like it will get that far. What are your feelings on the game shutting down so, well, suddenly?
