I am very sad to inform you all that Red 5 Studio’s have decided to close down their “sci-fi F2P MMO/Open world game “Firefall”. This became clear after the following post by Red 5 Studios (the post was published on the 5th of July):

“With heavy hearts, we regret to inform you that after much review and analysis, Red 5 Studios have decided to suspend the Firefall efforts on 7th, July 2017. Thank you for being an important part of the Firefall experience and for your loyalty and dedication to the online community. Your efforts and loyalty will not go without recognition, however. Firefall is currently developing a mobile version of the game and all of Firefall’s founders and players will be rewarded greatly in the new game. We will be sure to provide everyone with more updates as we have them.

Thank you for your support and enthusiasm throughout the years; we will see you at the next battle.”Red 5 Studios

Furthermore, Mark Kern (Ex-Red 5 employee, founder of League For Gamers and the driving force behind “Em-8er“) had the following to add on the matter of Firefall’s closure:

“Red 5 Studios has decided to shut down Firefall effectively tomorrow, July 7th. This means that today is the last day to claim Firefall credit via our founders’s program. Since we do not control Firefall’s servers, we will have no way to verify founders when the servers go down.We are saddened by this news, and apologize for the short notice. Please help spread the word so that any remaining Firefall vets or forum users can claim credit for Em-8ER’s future virtual cosmetics store.”Mark Kern

Simply put, “Firefall” will soon be history (not to mention the “claim Firefall credit via our founders’s program” part), and Mark Kern won’t be able to refund any of the”Firefall” beta players if the Red 5 forums are getting shut down (as seen and explained in the picture down below). So it would be a very wise idea to read through Mark Kern’s tweets and posts about “Firefall”as soon as possible. Well, at least if you want to claim credit for Em-8ER’s future virtual cosmetics store.

And with that said, what’s your take on this matter? Let us know your thoughts in the comment section down below!
