Following its launch earlier this year in April, free-to-play shooter Warface is being shut down on the Xbox 360.
Posting the announcement on its official Facebook page, Crytek revealed that as of today, no new players will be able to join the game. The complete closure though will take place on February 1, 2015. Until then, all existing players can keep playing the game. They however, will not be able to purchase new in-game currency “Kredits.”
“To all our Xbox 360 players, thank you for choosing to spend your time playing Warface,” said Crytek. “We hope you’ll become part of the vibrant community enjoying regular new content and co-op and versus action – subscription free – on PC.”
The studio did not mention as to why Warface is being shut down on the Xbox 360. An assumption would be perhaps financial constraints.
The studio had been suffering financially earlier this year. In July, the studio revealed that it had found additional funding from a mysterious source. Crytek was confident that things would run more smoothly now. From the recent announcement though, it seems there were a few bumps on the way.
