Warface Xbox 360 Version Closing Early Next Year

It appears that the Xbox 360 version of Crytek's free-to-play shooter, Warface, won't even make it to its first anniversary. Having launched on the 360 in April of this year, Warface will close its Xbox 360 servers effective February 1, 2015.

The PC version of Warface will still be supported and Crytek is encouraging Xbox 360 players to migrate over to that version once the servers finally close.

From Crytek's Facebook page:

In the run up to February 1st next year, we'll be gradually winding down Warface service on Xbox 360. Existing players will still be able to play the game and use any content they have already acquired until the game closure date. However, effective today, no new players will be able to join and current players will no longer be able to purchase additional Warface Kredits. Players can spend any existing Kredits they have within the game until it closes on February 1st, 2015. To all our Xbox 360 players, thank you for choosing to spend your time playing Warface – and we hope you'll become part of the vibrant community enjoying regular new content and Co-op and Versus action – subscription free – on PC.

This really shouldn't come as too much of a surprise since Crytek's had a hard road for the last year and almost had to close down in August of this year and only managed to save itself from insolvency by delaying employee paychecks.

Here's to hoping that Crytek's move to being an online publishing house pays off in the future.

(Thanks to Ajax Sax for the heads-up!)

Should've been obvious this was going to shutdown. Americans don't like grind fests after playing tihs game for almost 2yrs. Unlock system is broken money takes while to learn and the game seems to have a major skill gap live A.V.A. Either your garbage or amazing. Bottom line fun but needs work

I think Warface is one of the best f2p shooters out there, i don't play it anymore but played it alot while it was in BETA. I loved that game because it was different than the other f2p shooters.. Gameplay was nice..
I don't know why it didn't make it..

this game have lots of potencial...i played this for while but not anymore...the problem with all f2p fps is the costumization...everyone looks the same character to me thats kind boring...
i just remembre in APB reload costumization...that was good back in the day...now everyone looks like clones in games especially in fps games....why???

we want a good FPS...like apb reload costumization on characters and blacklight retribution custumization on weapons with warface gameplay....i bet everyone play it this game

Wow really? The developer's should at least add account migration like Warframe so they can transfer console content to pc. Also Warface isn't even that popular it has about 600 people online ( Steam ), I suggest playing Warframe, Dead Island Epidemic, Firefall, Loudout, Alliance of Valiant Arms, etc or do that Steam bidding thing.

This proves even further that there is no point in getting a next-gen console. I so regret buying a PS4. What a painful waste of my money that was. If you have a gaming PC, the only console that will make a difference is probably a Wii U.
