The current iteration of Firefall's
PvP mode is not long for this world. Red 5 Studios
CEO Mark Kern wrote a letter to the community
stating that the studio is displeased with the current PvP state in the game and wants to "regroup, rethink, and deliver the best PvP system [it] can."
Kern said that less than 3% of the player population in the game engages with PvP: "Firefall
started with PvP. We have gone through several iterations, and for some time, pursued the controversial e-Sports route. As many of you know, its not working very well."
As a result, Red 5 will be shutting down the PvP side of the game in the "near future" to retool and relaunch the system.
