NCSoft closes shutters on WildStar


Carbine Studios’ action-MMO WildStar has now been shut down for good.

The news that Korean publisher NCSoft was closing Carbine Studios and shuttering WildStar broke in early September. Now, the process of closing WildStar has concluded – even WildStar’s official website merely consists of a notice that the game has been closed.

WildStar fans have, unsurprisingly, been mourning the MMO’s passing. The above video, entitled RIP WildStar and uploaded by YouTuber Paul Buckley, charts WildStar’s final moments. The video below, uploaded by kaossverige, is entitled WildStar: One Last Conga. 

WildStar’s Twitter account also registered the MMO’s passing, saying: “As of November 28 at 2pm PST, the North American and European WildStar game service has closed. Thank you to everyone who joined us on this grand adventure across Nexus!” If you want to join WildStar’s wake, your best bet is to head for the late MMO’s Reddit.
