Will Kingdom Age be next?
Maybe GREE just hasn't made the announcement yet....
... or maybe Kingdom Age is one of the few games that GREE will continue.


I will highly recommend all gamers to stop buying ingame currency in any GREE game until GREE has officially announced that they will continue running the game!!!
Because GREE has made it very clear that they will NOT let you transfer any remaining ingame currency you had bought for real money to another GREE game than they shut the servers!!!!

GREE will just take your money and laugh !!!!

For those that has purchased ingame currency recently for any of the games that GREE is shutting down
I will recommend that you try to contact Apple App store or Google Play store for a refund.
GREE is NOT giving any!!

Well, since it says this on all the links above:
4. What can I play now?

GREE offers a variety of other fun and free mobile games, including Knights & Dragons,
Criminal Legacy, War of Nations, Beyond the Dead, Modern War, Kingdom Age and Crime City.

It looks like Kingdom Age is one of the games not to be shut down.

Eventually KA will be shutdown; when? 1 year, 2 years...5 years from now? But not anytime soon. There's no way those games being shutdown make the kind of money CC, MW and KA does.

I see this as a positive sign for KA. Hopefully they have realized where their bread and butter is coming from and will concentrate more on the well established games.

Who would have thought Jackpot Bingo would have made it this long...Weird

We are focusing our teams on the current titles. The teams are working on some new features and changes.

I posted about 3 months ago, that GREE was gona take offline LAW within 4 months or so, because they did the exact same thing with Monster Quest.

regarding KA, CC and MW, if you see GREE taking events off, then that means the games will be taken offline within 3 to 4 months, so as long as you see new events popping up, we are good to keep playing

Gree's insistence on having games where spending small amounts provides no benefit is what is killing them. The games that do work are kept afloat by a vanishingly small number of cash-rich individuals. You can't do anything of any substance with just a few pounds - you have to spend /$$$ to gain an advantage.

How about changing it up with a subscription-based game without in-app purchases? Charge a few quid a month to play and see where that takes you. Stops the disparity between the haves and have-nots and widens your purchasing customer base (if the game is good enough)

Micropayments - it's a thing and Apple earns a FORTUNE from it

No need for panic!
Modern War,Crime City and Kingdom Age are the games that are long time here and those games have the most players from all others that Gree developed.
New games need to get more players,they dont have a steady base of players as this 3 games have.So that is why i know that this 3 games will remain what ever happens with other ones.
As you see you have a new feautures or events there so that means that Gree wants to improve them and keep them

I don't belive in that.
New feautures as crafting is coming soon in Ka and that is a proof that Ka is here to stay
