Archlord 2 is shutting down in November 2015

archlord 2 3

One more day, one more shutdown notice. This is beginning to become quite frequent and while we’re not happy to see this – as we know a lot of jobs are on the line -, it’s becoming more and more evident that only the best games will succeed and last more than a year or two.

Webzen has announced today that Archlord 2 is going to close its doors on November 24, 2015. No reason was revealed for the decision, but as usual it is probably related with a low playerbase to keep the game sustainable. You can still enjoy the game with a lot of free extra buffs before it shuts down in November.

Webzen revealed a few stats about Archlord 2: “Over 300,000 players have logged on to Archlord 2 for a combined total of over 5 million hours (that’s over 580 years!) of play-time.”

Archlord 2 wasn’t a bad game, but neither were Dead Island: Epidemic or Infinite Crisis and look just how that turned out.

Webzen is working on bringing a couple of Korean MMORPGs to North America and Europe, namely ELOA (Elite Lord of Alliance) and ASTA: The War of Tears.

    I played Inspirit Online AKA ELOA, and that game will definitely not last long. It may look good visually(kinda), but lacks features to make it unique. In other words, it just feels like any other mmorpg.
