[DFO] Dungeon Fighter Online Closes On June 13
Nexon America has announced on April 2, 2013 that the North American service of Dungeon Fighter Online (DFO) will be closing on June 13, 2013. This announcement comes after many months of speculation in response to an abrupt stop in the deliverance of concrete content updates as well as a dwindling of the already relatively small player base. The publisher says that DFO had not “attracted enough player interest to properly service the game” and said that internally they “struggled deeply with the popularity of DFO in North America as the title is immensely popular overseas.” The game is indeed immensely popular oversees with over 300 million global players and a world record 3 million users concurrently playing the game globally in 2011.
The game’s cash shop will be closed on April 11 and Nexon has prepared a compensation package for players, as well as packages to encourage DFO players to transition onto one of Nexon America’s other games.
