Perfect World Entertainment today announced via the new Arc portal that the long-running free-to-play action MMORPG, RaiderZ, will be officially closing its doors on August 10th. Perfect World Entertainment have published the game here in the West for many years but the developers, MAIET, either has or will shut down development of the game. Without a developer to support the improvements and additions the game needs, there’s nobody left to support the title.
[quote cite=”Perfect World Entertainment”]We have significant news to share regarding RaiderZ. Over the past weeks, RaiderZ has seen a few different instances where the game has had issues with the server. In the past, we have been working with MAIET, the developer of RaiderZ, in order to troubleshoot and solve issues to keep the game available for the players. Unfortunately, MAIET is no longer operating anymore.
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.[/quote]
