Just eight months after going live, Crytek has announced that it is calling time on the Xbox 360 version of free-to-play shooter Warface.
The game will be shut down proper on February 1st, although it has already been closed to new players. Players are also no longer able to buy in-game currency.
In the run up to February 1st next year, we'll be gradually winding down Warface service on Xbox 360,” the studio said. 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.”
