Acony Games, developer of the free-to-play first-person shooter MMO Bullet Run, is closing now that publisher Sony Online Entertainment has decided to end development on the game, the studio announced on its website.
"Acony regrets to announce that we are no longer able to support development of Bullet Run and that the studio will close," the German studio said, citing "commercial realities" that "made continued support for it unsustainable."
Last week, Sony Online Entertainment announced plans to shut down Bullet Run's servers March 8. The company ended billing for premium members Feb. 1.
"We remain very proud of the game we created and the enjoyment that it gave a lot people," Acony continued. "We hope that the loyal community of people who played the game had as much fun playing the game as we had making it, and we would like to offer heartfelt thanks to everyone who has supported us over the last few years."
Acony was founded in 2004. Bullet Run was created from the ashes of the studio's previous project, another massively multiplayer FPS called Parabellum, that was canceled in 2010.
