Fans of Puzzle Fighter should get their fill of the free-to-play mobile game now, Capcom is ending support for the game soon. They will be focusing resources on the Dead Rising franchise instead.

According to Capcom, the game is being shut down so Capcom Vancouver can focus on the Dead Rising franchise and is being pulled from the App Store and Google Play on July 1st, with the game’s only modes ending July 31st. Capcom is gifting player 10,000 gems as a thank you farewell for playing.

“As the studio is dedicating its focus to our flagship Dead Rising franchise, we have decided to sunset Puzzle Fighter. The game will be removed from app stores on July 1 and servers will be shut down on July 31. The game will still be playable until July 31 and today we are gifting all players 10,000 in-game gem currency. We are also making upcoming characters (Regina, Dr. Wily and Ada Wong) and stages (Darminor and Uroboros Laboratory) available for free for fans to enjoy up until this time. Regina and Dr. Wily will be available in-game later today, while Ada Wong and the new stages will be released on Monday April 23. Later today the game’s soundtrack will also be available to stream online for free via SoundCloud. In addition, the previous Classic Mode special limited event will be available at all times up until the server closure.”

While Capcom hasn’t announced Dead Rising 5 yet it could come at this year’s E3. It’s also unexpected considering that the previous entry, Dead Rising 4, underperformed but it comes as a relief for fans.
