Even in a drought-ridden summer (at least in much of the US) marked by big releases and exciting times for the gaming industry...a little rain must fall. Today, Reakktor Media's sci-fi space shooter, Black Prophecy, quietly announced that it will be closing its doors for good next month.
It is with great sadness that we announce that Black Prophecy will be closing its doors on September 26th, 2012. After August 29th, it will no longer be possible to purchase KK$, the Black Prophecy in-game cash currency. Players who have purchased KK$ in the past 6 months and still have KK$ in their account will receive an email with a voucher code that can be applied with any other gamigo title, such as Black Prophecy Tactics: Nexus Conflict. On top of this, players will still have access to their remaining in-game funds and are free to use them until the closing of the servers.
This past year-and-a-half has been filled with very bright spots as well as many hardships. It has been an honor to team up with the profound talent at Reakktor Media, and to have had the opportunity to bring a small bit of light to the space action genre. Along the way weÂve made many friends, as well as suffered the loss of a few very close ones. The Black Prophecy team put everything on the line for this title to succeed, working any and all angles to keep hope alive even after Reakktor had to shut its doors. Financial realities donÂt always pause for effort though, which brings us to this point in time.
We hope youÂll enjoy Black Prophecy for the next four weeks with us, and work together to give it a fun and wonderful send-off. We will be planning some in-game fun and events over the next few weeks as we prepare to send this ship into the darkness of the universe. So long for now, and we wish you all a bright future.
