Codemasters announced that they will close the North American and European RF Online game servers after failing to reach an ongoing licensing agreement with South Korean developers CCR.
"It is with much sadness that today we announce our intention to close the European and North American RF Online game servers operated by Codemasters", reads the official announcement.
"Our licence for RF Online is due to expire shortly and unfortunately, despite several weeks of negotiations with CCR, the Korean developers of the title, we have not been able to reach an agreement to renew the contract."
This means that Codemasters will no longer have the right to operate the service in the Western territories it currently provides service in and therefore we are obliged to shut down all associated game services before the licence expires."
"The last full day of service will be 9th November, 2008. All RF Online world servers will shut down on the morning of Monday 10th November, UK time."
"The purchase of credits is now no longer available to ensure all players have the opportunity to spend their remaining Novus credits in game. Likewise, the creation of new RF Online game accounts/subscriptions is now disabled."
