The MapleStory franchise has been one of Nexon’s more notable properties with its MMO world of cartoonish & lighthearted aesthetic. The first game was hugely popular for a long time, and the second would eventually go live in 2018, but it has never quite found the love sầu & enthusiasm of the original. To that end, the MapleStory 2 devs have announced that they are shutting down service on the game at the end of March.

Nonetheless, the MapleStory crew thanks those who stuck around for the long haul.

“We are forever grateful for your patience & dedication khổng lồ MapleStory 2 as we tried lớn rework the game starting with Project New Leaf,” the MapleStory team wrote. “But ultimately we’ve sầu decided that we will not be able to lớn provide the type of service that would live up lớn your expectations. We took a hard look at the current state of the game & its future roadmaps, and sadly reached the conclusion that it would be difficult to lớn maintain long-term continuation of the game while remaining true to lớn what made MapleStory 2 your MapleStory 2.”

Refunds on the virtual currencies in MapleStory 2 will be offered, và instructions on how to pursue qualifying refunds are available with the closing message. Unfortunately, this seems to lớn be the over of the road for a Nexon’s colorful MMO for the timebeing.
