Archlord 2 Shutting Down

Webzen is pulling the plug on Archlord 2… 

If i’m not mistaken Archlord 2 has only been out for about a year. I remember playing the closed beta last year. It impressed me enough for me to spend a few hours playing it, but I never went, until today anyway. I was really surprised to see the game shutting down so soon after it’s release. It’s only been out for a year and it’s already shutting down.

Only 600,000 people bothered to play Archlord 2 during it’s short lifespan. That could be one reason why it’s shutting down, but Webzen can only blame themselves for that. They didn’t really do much to get anyone’s attention the way other MMO’s do and point and click MMO’s don’t do very well in today’s market. You’ve got to innovate and Archlord 2 didn’t. Regardless I am a little sad to see it go so soon after it’s birth last year.

If you were planning on jumping into Archlord 2 you might want to reconsider that and play something. The servers will go down in November and they’ll stay down.

    1. Lol.

      I agree. This game was heavily focused on pvp, but they did nothing to promote their brand. The first Archlord game was out for years before they shut it down. Archlord 2 was fun though.
