Action MMO RaiderZ Is Shuting Down in North America in August
Released in 2012 in NA, RaiderZ is a free-aiming monster hunting MMO originally developed by Korean company Maiet Entertainment. Following the EU closure in 2013, the game's NA server will be shutting down this August.
According to PWE, Maiet is no longer operating anymore and that makes it impossible for PWE to solve game problem and server issue that may come out in the future. Therefore, the decision of fully shutting down the game is made.
The publisher writes
Since there’s no more active developer, it’s very difficult to troubleshoot any issues that happen to RaiderZ. We’re unable to deliver a quality experience to you, our players, so we’ve made the difficult decision to shut down RaiderZ.
We will shut down RaiderZ on August 7, 10am PDT. Prior to the shutdown, we will bring back the east servers to working order.
All RaiderZ payments dated back to May 7 will be refunded 100% to your Arc Account Balance, which can be spent in any of our PWE games.
We have also reduced prices of all items in RaiderZ’s item shop to one ZEN for those who are still able to connect to the game and play. All players who have logged-in during the past 30 days will be granted 1000 in-game currency to use on the item shop prior to the shutdown. This transfer will happen today, July 8.
Thank you for your interest and loyalty to RaiderZ over the last three years, and we appreciate your understanding. Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns and we’ll answer them to the best of our abilities.
Currently the game is still available to download on Steam and there's no word on the fate of the Steam version.
