I have not played Khan Online for more than a year now but I still do visit the forum just to know what is happening in it. In my visit today, I learned that Khan Online Philippines publisher, Level Up Games, has finally decided to close down the service after 4 years.
Honestly, I was not surprised to learn about the closure because I’ve known a long time ago (not really that long, LOL) that Khan Online Philippines would be the next game to go and besides it was to be expected, the game is almost dead anyway so why prolong the suffering of the few remaining Khanatics.
Below is GM-Setsuna’s announcement at Khan Online Philippines official forum:
My Dearest Friends in Khan
I wish you all well and in good health.
As you are all wondering and probably in shock after hearing the news from your fellow players who attended the meeting last night, I’ll paint a clear picture on what is probably going to happen in a few week’s time.
Yes, it’s true. The management is planning on closing down the game we have come to love for almost 4 years.
Main reason is the lack of developer support.
As much as we would like this game to continue, Mirinae already withdrew their assistance in providing additional content, updates and even game exploit fixes prompting us to look for other alternatives.
We even thought of the possibility of acquiring licensing of Khan Program just to keep our small community intact.
Sadly, it’s impossible – we are just a publisher not game developer.
In hopes of saving our precious community we have decided to find you a new home to PW and it was one of our agenda last night.
It may or it may not be the answer but we can’t just go down without a fight nor leave without establishing any means of contact.
In truth, we are all part of the Khan Family.
Even with personal differences in-game and IRL, we have always kept in touch with one another for more than 3 years…
Forever a Khanatic,
Just for the record, I never QUIT Khan Online. I was just waiting for an update to the game. I guess that update will never come.
Anyway, in my few years playing Khan Online I’ve met and became friends with a lot of people. I know I haven’t been in-contact with them but I’m pretty sure I would never forget them specially those that make up the greatest Guild in Khan Online history, xxxHolic.
Party On Forever!
