Sega has announced that it is closing Sonic Runners, which was the first mobile game from Sonic Team.
Sales of the game's currency, Red Star Rings, were terminated last week. All other operations connected with the tile will be killed on July 27th. Any unspent currency will be rendered redundant after that point.
Sonic Runners is a free-to-play endless runner that first released last year. Although Sonic had been dabbling in mobile games for years before, this was the first game to be developed for the platform by its original creators.
Since launch, the Sonic Runners Team has done its best to provide our users with the most enjoyable play experience possible. It is with great regret that we announce the closure of Sonic Runners, effective from the dates below,” Sega said.
We would like express out most sincere thanks to all our users for their patronage and support. The Sonic Runners team hopes that you enjoyed the journey as much as we did.”
Sega is no stranger to calling time on mobile games, having culled a large number of titles last year.
