Faxion Online to Cease Operation within 30 Days

Posted Thu, Aug 25, 2011 by Martuk

Faxion Online suffered a layoff of its staff earlier this month and now it looks like the game's demise is on the horizon. The game has only been in full operation since its May 26th launch, but according to a recent post on the Faxion Online forums, the game will cease operation sometime within the next 30 days.

It's with an extremely heavy heart that I write to inform you of the upcoming discontinuation of Faxion live services. This week, we will begin the process of ending live service, starting with the immediate discontinuation of store purchases, online registration, and client downloads, with final server closure scheduled to commence within the next 30 days.

We’re eternally grateful for all the support, feedback, and competition our players have provided through thick and thin. Faxion’s development was a Herculean effort that some said was impossible given the timeframe and resources we had, and we’re proud to have delivered a PvP-driven experience that people could enjoy. Alas, all good things must come to an end.

If you have any epic stories, fond memories, or tales of glory that you’d like to share from your time in Limbo, please share them here. We’d love to relive the great times we’ve had with you all working on Faxion, as developers and as players.

I speak for the entire Faxion Team when I say: Thank you for all the support you’ve shown. Slay on, friends -- one last time!

As always, our best wishes go out to the Faxion Online team and those affected by the layoffs and end to the MMORPG project.

PvP, multi-classing, and a completely irreverent treatment of an underserviced theme: the afterlife. But does Faxion Online treat players to a slice of gaming heaven or a grindy hell?
