Faxion Online Has Reached The End Times
The makers of Faxion Online, the biblical mythology-themed MMO featuring angels, demons and areas based around the seven deadly sins, has announced that the short lived game has been called up to heaven. The proclamation was made in a heartfelt statement posted yesterday to the FO forums:
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.
Faxion Online only launched in late May, 2011. Terrible news for the staff who put their lives into making this game, particularly in this economy, but here’s hoping they land on their feet. Insert your end-times jokes in comments.
