[SA] Sudden Attack Closed

Nexon America has discontinued its service of Sudden Attack. The closure was announced in early December and is blamed on a lack of success in growing the community to a level necessary to maintain development.

Sudden Attack is one of the most popular online first-person shooters in the world with it dominating its genre in South Korea and being successful also in China, Japan and elsewhere across Asia.

Nexon only took over North American publishing of Sudden Attack in October 2011 after being published by GameHi since 2009. Nexon acquired GameHi in 2011 and took over the publishing of the game in America and Korea (which was a quite humorous saga all in its own: The Fight Over Sudden Attack).

[SA] Sudden Attack Is Closing

The North American service of Sudden Attack will be shutting down in early 2014. Sudden Attack is one of the most popular online first-person shooters in the world with it dominating its genre in South Korea and being successful also in China, Japan and elsewhere across Asia. More details on the closure will be announced soon.

Nexon only took over North American publishing of Sudden Attack in October 2011 after being published by GameHi since 2009. Nexon acquired GameHi in 2011 and took over the publishing of the game in America and Korea (which was a quite humorous saga all in its own: The Fight Over Sudden Attack).

Sources had told me about this serious possibility several months ago and same sources have now assured me that no other live game is currently under threat.

[NXNA] Nexon America Taking Over Sudden Attack Soon?

Thanks to maplefreak26, I am now aware of a huge hint that Nexon America will be taking over the global service of successful free-to-play first-person shooter Sudden Attack, developed and currently published by Nexon subsidiary Gamehi.

This was found by viewing the source of forum2.nexon.net, before the redirection to the Dragon Nest forums.

It also shows the future URLs for when the rest of Nexon games convert over to the new forums, similar to those for Atlantica and Dragon Nest.

Sudden Attack is the most popular first-person shooter in South Korea, where it was launched all the way back in 2004. It was originally published in Korea by CJ E&M on their Netmarble portal, but has since been taken over by Nexon. Sudden Attack is also published in Japan (Nexon), China (Shanda), South-East Asia (AsiaSoft), Brazil (Level Up! Games) and has a global service (currently Gamehi). Apart from its global service, it has the same publishers in its service regions as MapleStory, at least until a Nexon takeover becomes reality.

Sudden Attack is developed by Gamehi which was acquired by Nexon in May 2010. Nexon began major restructuring of Gamehi after the latter reported disappointing financial results for the first half of 2010. Gamehi received an awesome new logo that’s similar in many ways to the Nexon logo in April 2011.
