Bullet Run Ready to Walk Into the Sunset on March 8th

Posted on February 1, 2013 AT 06:26pm

Apparently, the cost of fame is too expensive, after all. Even though it was only opened to the public last June, Sony Online Entertainment and Acony Games have decided to put Bullet Run out to pasture. They have planned a ‘Grand Finale’ event to take place on the final day, March 8th.

Having played a good number of hours both in beta and official release, I’m sad to see it go. F2P Arena FPS is a pretty niche market, but I had hopes that Bullet Run would’ve hung around for a while.

Here’s the full text, straight from the Bullet Run website:

Dear Bullet Run Contestant,

After much review and consideration, Acony Games and Sony Online Entertainment (SOE) have mutually made the decision to discontinue development on the free-to-play FPS game, Bullet Run. As a result, SOE and Acony will sunset the game and end all game services for Bullet Run on March 8, 2013. We would like to thank the players for their dedication and support of the game.

All membership billing for the game will end on February 1, 2013, and players with platinum memberships will receive prorated refunds for their remaining time. Players with active memberships as of February 1 will be able to continue playing as platinum members until the game is shut down on March 8th. Below is the Bullet Run Sunset FAQ.

    • Is Bullet Run being shut down?
      • Yes. Sony Online Entertainment (SOE) and Acony Games have decided to sunset the game and end all game services for Bullet Run on March 8, 2013. We would like to thank the players for their dedication and support of the game.
    • What happens to the Bullet Run game after the shut down date?
      • All Station account information will stay with SOE. Acony will retain the game code but at this time there is no plan to relaunch the game.
    • Will I be able to play Bullet Run until March 8, 2013?
      • Yes, all players with accounts in good standing will continue to be able to log in and play Bullet Run until it shuts down.
    • What happens to my Platinum Membership?
      • All billing for Platinum Memberships will end on February 1, 2013. If you have a Platinum Membership as of that date, your Platinum Membership will remain active until the shutdown date on March 8, 2013.
    • What about SOE Game Cards?
      • SOE Game Cards are no longer redeemable for Platinum Membership in Bullet Run.
    • What is the refund policy for existing Platinum Memberships? How will I get a refund?
      • As of February 1, 2013, all billing for Platinum Memberships will end. SOE will provide a pro rata refund for any time remaining on your Bullet Run subscription past January 31, 2013. If you have a valid credit card on your Station account, the refund will be applied to that credit card. Otherwise, SOE will mail the refund check to the current billing address on your account. Refunds are expected to be issued within 90 days after the shut down date (March 8, 2013). Please be sure to review and update your email and mailing address in your Station Account so that we can contact you regarding any refund.
    • What will happen to my game progress, in-game characters, and in-game items?
      • The servers are scheduled to be shut down on March 8, 2013. At that point players will no longer be able to access the game, their characters, or in-game items.
    • Can I purchase new items until March 8, 2013? What will happen to these items?
      • New items are purchasable until March 8, 2013. Please be aware that these items, along with all others, will not be available after the shutdown of Bullet Run.
    • What happens to my Station Cash after the game shuts down?
      • Your Station Cash will still be in your Station Account after the game is shut down and can be used in other SOE games.
    • Will the Bullet Run Website and/or Forums be available after the service shuts down?
      • All Websites and Forums associated with Bullet Run will be removed after the service shuts down.
    • I have a further concern and want to contact Customer Service. How do I do that?
      • We definitely want to help address any further concerns, and if there is some specific issue with your situation that isn’t covered but could be answered by Customer Service please follow the directions on this page. You are also welcome to post any general questions in this thread; we will be reviewing it frequently.

 

Bryan Todd [aka DieselBT] -- This is where I'm supposed to say something clever about myself. Let's pretend I did, and it conveniently mentions all of my top interests, such as anime, video games, crazy gadgets, electronic music, voice acting, sound editing, and countless other ridiculously fascinating topics. I also like to write stuff about things, which is why I'm here.

...That, and I like your shirt.
