The North America version of RaiderZ is shutting down on August 7, 10am PDT, Perfect World has announced. The main reason for the closure is that the developer MAIET Entertainment isn’t operating anymore and the publisher isn’t ready to troubleshoot and solve issues with the game has it happened in the past. The European version of RaiderZ shut down in July 2013, it was operated by Gameforge.
RaiderZ was advertised as a stunning action combat MMO with massive boss fights akin to the Monster Hunter series, but it fell way short of the hype. With MAIET not operating anymore, things aren’t looking good for GunZ: The Duel and GunZ: The Second Duel, the shooters from the Korean studio.
