According to reviews, this is the leading shooter IP in the FPS game market with various records, including the highest revenue and huge number of players. Released in March 2007, Crossfire recorded 8 million concurrent players.
The Raid series still attracts gamers to this day
Back in the 2000s, shooters in North America were mostly played on consoles but in Korea like in Europe PC was still the preferred platform.
During the online video game boom, Korean developer Smilegate decided to take its flagship product overseas. Smilegate cooperated with fellow country company Neowiz to expand the product, releasing in a series of countries.
In the following year, Smilegate engaged in the “localization” of the Crossfire for the Chinese market. Everyone on the development team moved to China and studied the needs and taste of the local players. After 1 year of preparation, the mainland version was released in 2008, then came to Vietnam.
As of April 2009, there were 1 million concurrent players in China alone. By the end of the year, the game also landed in Japan, North America, the United Kingdom, Vietnam, the Philippines, Indonesia, and Russia. 12 years later, the global players playing this FPS game have surpassed 8 million.
A Chinese TV series based on Raid has aired, currently recording 1.9 billion views. NSX Crossfire also signed a film production deal with Original Film and a partnership deal with Sony Pictures last January.
In addition, a sports park themed with this Korean game was opened in Suzhou and the mobile version of Crossfire: Legends was released. The game also has a PC Client version of Crossfire Z, a tactical version of Crossfire: Warzone for mobile. A console version of Crossfire X is planned for release.
CrossfireX is announced as a first-person shooter title to be released exclusively for Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S this year. At the introduction of Gamescom Opening Night Live 2021, the audience was introduced to a completely new trailer about Crossfire X with a ‘heavy’ action. The game will probably open later this year.
In 2011, 11 countries participated in the first WCG Crossfire tournament with a prize pool of $34,000. The team from China’s Liaoning Dongjia won the Finals against the US team and became the first world champion of the game.
Smilegate’s Crossfire is so far a monumental first-person shooter and will continue to be developed into the future.
