Smilegate's Crossfire Shutting Down In Korea
It's not often that a game that brought in $1 billion in revenue last year shuts down in its home region, but that's going to be the case next month when Smilegate's Crossfire closes its servers in Korea.
As reported by MMOCulture and others, the free-to-play FPS, which is huge in China (where it's published by Tencent), will be closing up shop in Smilegate's native South Korea on March 3. Despite having little presence in the West -- not that Smilegate hasn't tried -- Crossfire is one of the biggest games in the world, always ranking among top earners on PC. An Xbox One X version, CrossfireX, is planned for a 2020 launch.
