Sudden Attack 2 – Nexon announces game closure of new online shooter

As the successor to the most popular online shooter in South Korea, Sudden Attack, high hopes were placed on Sudden Attacks. However, Nexon today announced it is shutting down the game on 29 September, just a little less than 3 months after launching. The official reason stated was that the team is “deeply troubled by the feedback”, and will not be able to fix the problems in the short term.

Sudden Attack 2 game closure announcement

As Sudden Attack 2 could not meet with the overall expectations from both players and development team, the drastic action of shutting the game down was made. Of course, the process of refunding will begin. It has been a lousy month for Nexon, with Sudden Attack 2 being attacked (no pun intended) for indecency, and its Co-Founder stepping down after being indicted in a corruption case.

What ..the..actual ..fuck


we in malaysia always hope that sudden attack 2 can launch in malaysia…why want shutting down?


It had to do with they were taking up a battle against Overwatch, which at the time was gaining a larger and larger marketshare. Still sad to see it didnt launch (in NA and EU), tho, I was hyped for it aswell 🙁

its a tough competition to make games in korea. If you want to make a game in Korea that can be as successful as games like Starcraft 2 or League, you need new ideas. Something out of the box. FPS games now cant just go with knife skins, weapon skins, or character skins where if you buy in game skins you win the game. Pay to win. Thats why CSGO was so successful. Its because it isnt a pay to win game.

apparently from what i heard was that the game had alot of backlash from the Esports community. Also SA released at the worst possible moment. Korea is the home of Esports so the competition to make games that the community will like is very tough. Morever, SA was released in a time where games like League were reaching their peak and with the new game Overwatch that became a huge success, its no wonder why they decided to shut down. However I do hope SA 2 will release again since I’ve been waiting for that game for so fucking long. Oh well…CSGO it is 😀
