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 Gold world servers will shut down on the morning of Monday 10th November, UK time.
The purchase of credits is now no longer available to ensure all players have the opportunity to spend their remaining Novus credits in game. Likewise, the creation of new RF Online game accounts/subscriptions is now disabled. For further information, please see our RF Online Closing Down FAQ in the forums.
RF Online was Codemasters Online's first MMO service and we have been very proud of its development and success during its three years of existence. It was also one of the first Eastern-style MMORPGs to ever make it to Western market and do well and it's with much fondness that we look back and remember these achievements.
We'd like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who declared their allegiance and gave us their support with RF Online Gold over the past few years and especially, to thank all the players who spent countless hours with us in Novus.
