The Xbox 360 version of Warface, the free-to-play first person shooter from developer Crytek, will shut down for Microsoft's game console on February 1. The game will still be available to play on the PC platform.

Warface launched as an open beta for the Xbox 360 in March before losing the beta tag in April. Crytek has not revealed why it is shutting down the Xbox 360 version so soon after its launch, but in a message on its Facebook page, it did say that current players will be able to access Warface from now until February 1. No new players will be able to join the game and no in-game Kredits can be bought.

This is the second free-to-play Xbox 360 game that has announced its shut down this year. The fantasy action RPG Ascend: Hand of Kul closed its console doors just a few weeks ago in November.
