Korean version still available
While RF Online is in no danger of disappearing entirely, unfortunately the North American and European servers will be closing next month. CCR (the Korean Publisher) and Codemasters (the licensees running the NA and Euro servers) were unable to come to an agreement for extending the license. Perhaps we'll see the game come back to North America and Europe, but it will be with someone else.
It is with much sadness that today we announce our intention to close the European and North American RF Online game servers operated by Codemasters.
Our licence for RF Online is due to expire shortly and unfortunately, despite several weeks of negotiations with CCR, the Korean developers of the title, we have not been able to reach an agreement to renew the contract.
This means that Codemasters will no longer have the right to operate the service in the Western territories it currently provides service in and therefore we are obliged to shut down all associated game services before the licence expires.
The last full day of service will be 9th November, 2008. All RF Online world servers will shut down on the morning of Monday 10th November, UK time.
For more information on the closing of the NA and Euro servers, please check the RF Online official site.
