Alas, poor Maplestory 2, you have been cute and likable after which you bought kicked to the curb after lower than two years. We did quite a bit to memorialize this sport earlier than it left us in each its gameplay and its memorable soundtrack, however the sport’s world model shut down altogether and left it solely in individuals’s recollections and the sport’s Chinese model. Unfortunately, even the latter isn’t for much longer for the world, because it has been introduced that the sport’s Chinese model will shut down at first of November. (The announcement is clearly not in English, so pretty warned be ye.)
Officially, the shutdown announcement implies that this is because of license agreements lapsing between Tencent and Nexon. This isn’t a full worldwide dying for the sport, as the unique Korean servers stay on-line and out there for gamers, however even then the sport doesn’t get common updates any longer all the identical. It’s a tragic ending for the sport’s worldwide viewers, and it in all probability says nothing heartening in regards to the sequel’s total attraction available in the market and the way forward for the franchise. Our condolences to Chinese followers who have been hoping for extra.
