Area F2 gets shutdown which is really sad day for every wild Mobile CQB FanPosted by Area F2LawsuitRainbow Six SiegeUbisoft May 20, 2020 in
A few days ago we talked about Area F2 causing lawsuit which in a nutshell Area F2 gets shutdown.
The official announcement from Area F2 staff is next.
Thank you for your support of Area F2. We are carrying out improvements to Area F2 in order to deliver a better experience to players. We will terminate the service of the current version (Area F2 gets shutdown) at 12:00 PM on 20 May 2020 (GMT+0).
We are thrilled at the number of downloads that Area F2 has received since its launch, making it into the top 3 of App Store free-to-play game rankings in some regions. Many players have joined our community and provided valued feedback.
In addition, many streamers, reviewers and players have created streams and videos of the game, with more than 300 game videos uploaded to date. We are pleased about this, but we are also aware of our responsibility to provide the best user experience to our players.
The mission of Area F2 is to allow players to experience the fun of Close-Quarters Battle (AKA CQB) on mobile devices. While we have had a lot of positive feedback, we also found that a lot of players gave up quickly before they were able to experience the core CQB gameplay. The steep learning curve resulted in many players abandoning the game in less than 30 minutes, and the reasons given include not knowing what to do, not knowing where the targets or their teammates are, and dying without seeing the enemy or knowing what killed them.
As game developers, we are not willing to accept an experience that we cannot deliver smoothly to as many players as we can. It is our responsibility to solve this issue, and extensive discussion has shown that this is an issue that requires large-scale, in-depth adjustments, perhaps even a complete overhaul of the design to achieve the mission of bringing CQB to as many players as we can on mobile devices. We have therefore made the difficult decision of terminating the operation of Area F2 in its current form to focus on making further improvements.
We received more than 10,000 feedback comments from players during the testing phase, and they will be invaluable to us as we work on designing an outstanding experience in subsequent development. Thank you for your support, and we hope to see you again once these improvements are complete.Source Area F2 Discoord
