Shortly before the game’s fourth anniversary, Cygames reveals that World Flipper will be ending service on February 20, 2024. The company also provided a schedule of events leading up to the game’s permanent shutdown.
World Flipper originally released on November 27, 2019 in Japan on Android and iOS. The game would make its western debut on September 8, 2021 via publisher Kakao Games. Unfortunately, the game’s worldwide run comes to an end as the Japanese version ends service.
World Flipper Reaches End of Service
In an official notice, Cygames confirms that World Flipper will reach its end of service on February 20, 2024 in Japan. Moreover, in-game purchases will cease on December 18 this year. A refund application period will be held at a later date for paid in-game currency that was not used before the end of service deadline. Once February 20 comes around, the game will be taken offline, and an update will allow players to view the Stargazing Encyclopedia at any time.
Moreover, Kakao Games released an official statement regarding the end of service for World Flipper in Japan. Unsurprisingly, the global version will be shutting down. An exact end of service date is being discussed internally at Kakao Games, and more details will be revealed at a later date.
