Xbox players to receive refunds after closure of popular games

Xbox shuts down studios and offers refunds

Xbox players are in for a shock as the company has announced the closure of several studios that worked on popular games, including Redfall and Hi-Fi Rush. This decision comes after Xbox's acquisition of Activision Blizzard for nearly $70 billion last year.

Popular games affected by studio closures

Redfall, one of Xbox's biggest exclusives from last year, was developed by Arkane Austin, which has now been shut down. This move has left players disappointed as the game was still receiving updates and had a season pass for future content. Similarly, Hi-Fi Rush developer Tango Gameworks was also closed down, despite the game's success.

Refunds for players who purchased season passes

Players who bought the season pass for Redfall will be eligible for a refund, according to a statement released by Arkane Austin. Although the exact amount is yet to be clarified, the studio assured that the game's servers will remain online for players to continue enjoying the game.

Impact on the gaming community

The closure of these studios has sparked outrage among fans, especially with the abrupt end to ongoing game development and updates. Xbox's decision to shut down these studios has left many players with mixed feelings about the future of their favorite games.
