Customers told Eliminate will close on May 25th; no reason for cancellation given
Social gaming outfit Ngmoco has pulled its free-to-play iOS shooter Eliminate from the App Store after apparently generating a lack of revenue.
As uncovered by TouchArcade, customers are now greeted with a popup stating the game will be canned on May 25th, but does not give a reason for the title’s closure.
Eliminate, one of the first free-to-play titles to arrive on iOS in 2009, is a four-player first-person shooter, that enabled users to purchase energy with real money, allowing them to buy in-game armour and weapon upgrades.
Ngmoco has previously closed other online freemium games, such as several titles in its Epic Wars series, and said at the time that withdrawing support for its titles was “nothing something we do lightly”.
“We work hard maintaining and growing communities on our other games and will continue to do so,” read a statement on the cancellations.
