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!)
