In its quest to attract gamers and bolster Xbox Game Pass, Microsoft has negotiated to get exclusives from third-party companies. There have been success stories, but not all of them can do well and we have the clearest example in CrossfireX, a game that less than a year after its launch confirmed the closure of its servers.
Through a statement, SmileGate announced that the CrossfireX servers will be shutting down on May 18, 2023. Once this happens, CrossfireX will no longer be available. This means that you will not be able to play its multiplayer mode or its campaign missions.
“We are deeply sorry to have to inform you of our decision to end our service for CrossfireX. Since the game’s release, we’ve worked tirelessly to bring it to a point we can all be proud of, and throughout it all we’ve had the honor and pleasure of supporting our players,” said the CrossFireX team.
SmileGate assured that shutting down the CrossFireX servers was a difficult decision and that it is not something they would like to do. Especially since they had an “active, passionate and enthusiastic” community that they want to thank for being part of the journey.
It is with deepest regret that we must inform you of our decision to terminate our service for CrossfireX. We want to thank each and every one of our players for playing and being a part of this journey with us. For full details, please visit: https://t.co/Kx03nYOmLA pic.twitter.com/Gl790Tn38T
