It might have been fun while it lasted, but it seems it’s time for RIFT Prime to be put to bed, without even making it through all expansions. The news came via a post published on the RIFT forums yesterday.

The pay-to-play server that allowed players to go back and relive the early days of the game will be closing at the end of the month — midnight Pacific on March 31.

Don’t worry though, you won’t lose your characters. They will be transferred to the regular RIFT servers over the following week. The whole process is expected to be complete by April 7.

QuintLyn is a long-time lover of all things video game related will happily talk about them to anyone that will listen. She began writing about games for various hobby sites a little over ten years ago and has taken on various roles in the games community. For the past five years she's been a writer at Gamebreaker TV.


  1. rift prime was a cash grab for a company deep in debt and it failed…you still do all that for free…don’t need to pay…

  2. They have 2 options for that game:
    1: Make it fully F2P without any class, level or zone restrictions (they can earn from cosmetics/mounts)
    2: Shut it down
