Crytek Is Taking Warface Off Xbox 360

Crytek is winding down its free-to-play shooter, Warface, on Xbox 360.

"In the run up to February 1st next year, we'll be gradually winding down Warface service on Xbox 360," said Crytek on Facebook. "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."

Warface was released on Xbox 360 in April this year after it amassed more than 25 million registered users on PC. The Xbox 360 version was published by Microsoft who is now behind the inexplicable decision to take down the game.

"With Microsoft acting as publisher for Warface on Xbox 360, we are bound by their decision to phase out the game on their console," said a Crytek representative. "We appreciate their efforts in supporting Warface up to this point, but, like the many players we're hearing from, are sad to see the game leave from Xbox 360."
