The string of online and live service games scheduled to close continues with CrossfireX, the multiplayer shooter for Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S.

Developed by Remedy in collaboration with South Korean publisher Smilegate, and a spin-off of the latter's hugely popular Crossfire, the first-person shooter was released on February 10, 2022.

However, a new blog post reveals that all support for CrossfireX will end on May 18, 2023, with no new content set to be released before that date.

All sales of the game have ceased, and any purchases made with the 14 days ended February 3 are eligible for refunds.

While the reasons for the shutdown were not given, the CrossfireX team said that "coming to this decision was not easy" and thanked players for their support.

CrossfireX is the latest in a number of online and live service games to be shutdown this year, with others including Apex Mobile, Knockout City, Rumbleverse, Dragon Quest: The Adventure of Dai - A Hero's Bond and Crayta.
