Delisting

Nexon announced on March 18th, 2020 that they would be shutting down MapleStory 2 for the Japanese and Western markets on May 27th after determining that the game was no longer sustainable in those regions. As of this writing service for the game continues in Korea and China. The full announcement follows:

With extremely heavy hearts, we are deeply saddened to inform you that we will be closing down the Global MapleStory 2 service on May 27th, 2020.

We are forever grateful for your patience and dedication to MapleStory 2 as we tried to rework the game starting with Project New Leaf, but ultimately we’ve decided that we will not be able to provide the type of service that would live up to your expectations. We took a hard look at the current state of the game and its future roadmap, and sadly reached the conclusion that it would be difficult to maintain long-term continuation of the game while remaining true to what made MapleStory 2 your MapleStory 2.

As part of this news, we are disabling the ability to purchase additional Blue Merets and Meso Tokens effective today. We will continue to support MapleStory 2 throughout the next couple months, although this will be our last update. The game will still be available free-to-play via the Nexon Launcher and Steam.

Additionally, we’ll be running several closing community and in-game events to celebrate our last few months together. You can check out the details here.

Please see below for a timeline of the MapleStory 2 service closure, as well as our refund policy.

Thank you to everyone who stayed with us and took the time to share feedback and creativity. You made the overall experience so wonderful.
