Fantasy Earth Zero Is Shutting Down – Square Enix Is Pulling The Plug March 21

Fantasy Earth Zero Is Shutting Down - Square Enix Is Pulling The Plug March 21Fantasy Earth Zero by Square Enix is an (obviously) fantasy-themed free-to-play RPG game featuring massive PVP battles, that was released less than a year ago – May 18, 2010 (publisher in USA – Gamepot). The sad news is that Square Enix is pulling the plug: the game is to be shut down at March 21, i.e., after only 10 months after re-release. I assume, SE are trying to cut their losses on MMO department while FFXIV is being “fixed”. A sad news for Fantasy Earth Zero players, indeed. GM Pasta has published a heartwarming message on FEZ official website plus now it shows a large, detailed notice of the events coming before the closing date. You can see both the notice and the message at the end of the post. Besides, i also wanted to add that I’m saddened myself, because when an MMO shuts down it’s a sad event, no matter if the game itself was bad or good. When a “normal” game bites the dust, you still can salvage a CD after, like, 15 years and play it or show to someone else, but when an MMO dies, there’s no going back, no chance to see the game again. It’s becoming a part of history. (more…)
