Bandai Namco has officially announced that it’s Free-To-Play IP, Tekken Revolution will be taken down March 21, 2017 while the game is already longer available across Europe.
This was confirmed by Tekken’s official twitter account, this has led some people to believe that Namco is trying to shift all of their consumer focus towards the up and coming Tekken 7. As it can be seen from the tweet, Bandai Namco urges the players to get ready for its ‘next battle’, which either points to fighting another Frikken Ogre boss or Tekken 7 (It’s probably the latter).

Tekken Revolution was released in June 2013 as a PlayStation 3 exclusive through the PlayStation Store. Apart from being the first free-to-play game from Tekken franchise, Tekken Revolution was also the first to arrive from the series as a digital-exclusive title.
Tekken 7 will release sometime 2017, although the game has already been available on Japanese arcades since 2015, with the exception of Tekken 7: Fated Retribution which released in 2016 and included map and costume additions.
Did you know that there was a free to play Tekken game? I sure as hell didn’t.
