After three years of service in North America, Nexon announced they would be closing the North American server for Dungeon Fighter Online. The arcade-style beat’em up is set to close on June 13th, with players unable to purchase anything in the game’s cash shop after April 11th.
In what reads as a fairly sincere post on the game’s website, Nexon’s American CEO Min Kim broke the news to players personally and mentioned that despite the game being immensely popular overseas, DFO struggled to gain popularity in North America.
Nexon also promised to compensate players who purchased unused and partially-used permanent and durational items within the past six months The dollar valus is correlated with the time of purchase, the status of the item, etc. You can find more information regarding the compensation along with the full announcement here.
