This week in Firestrike:
It is with heavy hearts that after 10+ incredible years of producing Battlehouse games, we announce that Firestrike will be taking its final ride off into the sunset in April 2023.
Effective now: We’re doubling the time speed-up for gold (halving the cost of all gold speed-ups), after which point we’ll be rolling out one final major content patch. While easing the grind on the next batch of content, we also plan to release a unique “End of The World” event that we think is going to be really fun for all of us. Firestrike deserves to go out with a bang!
We can’t stress enough how appreciative we are of all of you, and everything you’ve all contributed to Battlehouse games over this time. The majority of free-to-play games don’t last nearly this long, and the fact that we thrived as long as we did is a direct credit to our passionate player base. We’re aware that many of you have been with us since the very beginning, helping to build and nurture this amazing global community that has enjoyed these games just as much as we have. For that, we say “Thank you!”
In advance of sun-setting the games, we want to be as transparent with everyone as we possibly can, give plenty of time to make sure our small team has a soft landing at their next adventures, and also so that we all properly celebrate the legacy of the games we all love.
It’s important to note that in-game purchases will be available up until March 31st, 2023, at which point the games’ payment systems will be completely turned off. Thereafter, the games will not be accepting any payments, but will remain open for one last hurrah until at least April 30th, 2023. Any remaining gold that you have during this period will need to be used before that date.
We hope that the experiences we’ve developed over the years have provided you with the highest level of entertainment that we’ve always strived to reach. This hasn’t been an easy decision for our team to make, but we remain hopeful that with every end, comes a new beginning.
Good hunting, Commanders!
