Well, let’s just chalk this piece of news up in the “Not Very Surprising” category. Sony Online Entertainment and Acony Games have decided to bring the curtain down on their game show style shooter, Bullet Run. In a press release today SOE stated:
“After much review and consideration, Acony Games and Sony Online Entertainment (SOE) have mutually made the decision to discontinue development on the free-to-play FPS game, Bullet Run. As a result, SOE and Acony will sunset the game and end all game services for Bullet Run on March 8, 2013. We would like to thank the players for their dedication and support of the game.
All membership billing for the game will end on February 1, 2013, and players with platinum memberships will receive prorated refunds for their remaining time. Players with active memberships as of February 1 will be able to continue playing as platinum members until the game is shut down on March 8th.”
That means fans of the game have just a little over a month left to get their taunting and killing done. So, fans of Bullet Run, are you surprised by this or did the success of SOE’s other shooter Planetside 2 kind of make this decision inevitable? What do YOU think caused the game’s ultimate demise?
