SEGA shutting down service for Initial D Perfect Shift Online at the end of June
SEGA is pulling the plug on Initial D Perfect Shift Online. Today, the company announced that service for its game will end on June 30. SEGA stated that as it reflected on offering a satisfactory service for customers and the difficult situation, they decided to end the service.
Players will still be able to play Initial D Perfect Shift Online’s offline mode once June 30 has passed. However, if they delete any related data, the game is lost forever.
Initial D Perfect Shift Online seemed to have been a success for SEGA having racked up over 500,000 downloads. There was also talk about a sequel, though we haven’t heard much about it since December.
