Rift Russia Shuts Down

No Comments

Last week Trion announced that the Russian version of their critically acclaimed MMORPG will be shutting down.

The game was supposed to have a sunset period where they could keep the services running but trion was forced to shut it down early.

To comment the shutdown, Trion said:

When a partner began charging its users nearly $100 each in unauthorized “transfer fees” as well as subscriptions that extended beyond the time they knew the servers were going to be closed, we can confirm that we did have to end the extended sunset period.

Trion has already transferred thousands of Russian players and will continue to help any others who want to continue playing on the Trion servers.
