An Xbox exclusive released last year via Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S will shut down a year later and when it shuts down it will be completely unplayable. Last month, Xbox released a successful exclusive in the form of Hi-fi hurry, but this success has been uncharacteristic of the generation so far, which hasn’t been great for Xbox. Stumbling out of the gate is perhaps best represented by CrossfireXwhich was released on February 10, 2022 and ended the year as the third-lowest rated game on Metacritic with a score of 38. Suffice to say, it should come as no surprise that it’s shutting down on May 18. What’s a bit surprising, though, is that not only is the game’s multiplayer shutting down, but also the single-player campaign.
“It is with the deepest regret that we inform you of our decision to end support for CrossfireX on May 18, 2023,” reads a statement from Smilegate Entertainment. of supporting our players.”
The statement continued: “It wasn’t easy to come to this decision, but we are proud to say that our players have been incredibly active, passionate and excited to work with us to create a game that is fun for everyone. and would be enjoyable. We would like to thank all our players for playing CrossfireX and be a part of this journey with us.”
What does this mean for those who play? Well, no more new content will be added and there will be no more in-game purchase options, and those made in the last 14 days of February 3 are eligible for a refund. In the meantime, all purchase options in the Xbox Store will be discontinued. And that’s it. You have until May 18 to play the game before it disappears forever.
Why it is drawn is not said. That said, it’s pretty easy to see that keeping the game running costs more than it brings in, and it’s finally been an appropriate amount of time to pull the plug on the title.
