Enjoying Warface on Xbox 360? We’ve got some bad news for you…
Have you been enjoying Crytek’s free-to-play shooter Warfare? Bad news for you folks, the publisher is shutting the Xbox 360 version down.
While it only launched in April, it clearly hasn’t been the success Crytek had hoped it would be – the PC version will continue to be updated into the future.
“In the run up to February 1st next year, we’ll be gradually winding down Warface service on Xbox 360,” reads the statement. “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.”
It’s a shame, but the console transitional period can be tough on new IPs, who knows, it might even resurface on Xbox One in a couple of months.
