In 2010, Nexon America was proud to release one of Nexon’s unique and most popular titles, Vindictus. Since the launch, DevCat’s development team and Nexon America’s publishing team partnered to bring to you the action packed promise of Vindictus.
For more than three years, our teams worked hard in hopes of building a strong community through new content updates, service fixes, and events. We tirelessly battled hackers and farmers. We even had the honor of presenting the game to you at E3 and PAX. However, Vindictus was not able to grow beyond its very special and proud core following.
Sadly, Vindictus has not attracted enough player interest to properly service the game. Internally, we struggled deeply with the popularity of Vindictus in North America as the title is immensely popular overseas. For more than three years, we went through many milestones and several pushes before we came to this very difficult decision.
We sincerely regret to inform you that we will be bringing Nexon America’s service of Vindictus to an end.
We understand that many of you will be disappointed by this news. We hope that the game represents some of your great gaming memories. You have made new friends, created awesome characters, picked up some epic loot, and recorded some unforgettable victories. We, too, have loved working on this game, and learned a lot through our relationship with Vindictus.
A ramp-down of the game will begin on August 5, 2013, with the closing of the cash shop. Full service will discontinue on September 1, 2013.
We will compensate players for the purchase of unused or partially-used Permanent and Durational items purchased within the past six months. The dollar value is correlated with the time of purchase, the status of the item, etc.. More information regarding compensation can be found here.
Working on Vindictus during the past three years has been an honor, and we thank all of you Vindictorians for joining us on this exciting journey.
