Monster Strike Closure Announcement

2017.05.01

Dear Strikers,

After running for several years, it pains us to say it, but the English version of Monster Strike will be closing. It was hard to come to this decision, but despite efforts to keep the English version going, it hasn’t quite seen the success we had hoped for.

When we first launched the game, we were really hoping to bring the joy of Monster Strike to players everywhere. There had never been a monster-slinging game before, and there will never be another one quite like it. We’ll always remember the first play video that we made for YouTube, when we lost a close match against Inari X. Or the passionate comments that were posted on Facebook during the choppy waters we navigated through together last year. We’ve been really grateful for your support. For everything you’ve done to keep us going over the years, we owe you our thanks.

Though Monster Strike is ending, we’ll be going out with a bang. Here is the schedule over the next few months (times in ET):

May 2017 – New Transcensions, a new Colossal Quest, and the Tower of Champions will be released
June 2017 – New event series will be rapidly released along with daily and new Impossible Quests
July 2017 – Plentiful login rewards, new event series, daily and new Impossible Quests will be released
July 2nd, 2017 – In-game purchases, new installs, and data recovery will be disabled
August 1st, 2017 – Servers will shutdown

We’ve really enjoyed playing with all of you over these past few years. From here forward, we’ll be shifting our attention to new adventures that we hope you’ll enjoy even more. There’s lots more to come from us here at XFLAG, and we hope you’ll come along for the ride. See you around, Strikers.

Monster Strike Closing Q&A


Why in the name of Zeus?!

Unfortunately, despite our best efforts, the English version of Monster Strike just wasn’t the success that we thought it would be. Sustaining the game at a satisfactory level has become difficult, no matter how much we want to keep it going.

 

When will the game close?

The game will be open until August 1st, 2017 (ET).

 

Is there a chance that Monster Strike may reopen?

There are no plans for bringing the English version of Monster Strike back at the moment.

 

Can you refund my money?

We are unable to provide refunds. Sorry...

 

If I want to, can I still make purchases?

Yes, you can make in-game purchases until they are disabled on July 2nd (ET).

 

Can I still download the game?

The game will be removed from the App Store and Google Play on July 2nd, 2017 (ET). Data transfers will also be disabled as well. You will still be able to play the game until it closes on August 1st.

 

What’s going to happen during the next few months?

Don’t pack your bags yet. Though the game is ending, we’ll be releasing as much content as possible in the meantime. We hope you’ll join us as we end things with a frenzy of new Monster Strike content!

 

May 2017 – New Transcensions, a new Colossal Quest, and the Tower of Champions will be released

June 2017 – New event series will be rapidly released along with daily and new Impossible Quests

July 2017 – Plentiful login rewards, new event series, daily and new Impossible Quests will be released

July 2nd, 2017 – In-game purchases, new installs, and data recovery will be disabled

August 1st, 2017 – Servers will shutdown

 

Can I move my account to a different version?

We wish we could say yes, but we’re unable to provide transfers to other versions.

 

What will happen to the team?

New projects await, but our biggest concern is with the players at this point. We want to make sure that the last few months are as fun as they can be.

 

This makes me so sad... and angry.

We’re sorry for not being able to continue the game and letting down your expectations. This game and you, our players, have been a part of our lives for almost three years. The immediate reaction is a mix of sadness and anger, which we completely understand. Please know that this is an extremely painful decision for us, too.
