In 2003, Xfire released the Xfire Client, the first product to bring the outside world into your games. Since its humble beginnings as a simple chat client it has steadily grown to enable users to take screenshots, videos, and live broadcasts and share them on the Xfire Social Website. Attracting over 24 million users into a healthy and vibrant community, it set the standard for the socialization of PC Games.

Twelve years bring a lot of change to an industry. This is especially true in the fast paced world of gaming and the dynamics of the industry have changed significantly in this time. Since Xfire was first released, we’ve seen 3 console generations, the advent of mobile gaming, the transition from packaged games to digital distribution, and the rise of Free To Play games.

We’ve also seen esports grow from small LAN Parties into a maturing industry. Esports has the potential to grow as large as its real world counterpart, and at Xfire, we want to be a part of that. For this reason, we have decided to sunset the Xfire Client and the social site so we can focus our efforts on The Xfire Tournament Platform. This hasn’t been an easy decision. We have a lot of loyal users and we know many of you will be disappointed by the loss of the client and community. But we feel that we are well positioned to make a significant impact in bringing the exhilaration of esports from the pros to the masses, and we can’t do that effectively while also maintaining the client and social website.

We’d like to thank our loyal fans and users who have stuck with us over the years and we hope that you’ll join us on the next chapter of Xfire either as a tournament organizer, a team owner, a participant, or a spectator.

Thanks again for using Xfire, and we look forward to see you in a tournament in the near future.

I was not the only one person among this crowd of angry and disappointed players.

You don`t have any idea how i`m understand now words from Snudh and Gera$T when they told me about similar situation.

For me gameplay without chat with friends is nonsense. No matter how long we could talk and/or play. This is the sweetest part of my life which let me feel pure fun. I looking for rest from social life from time to time and XFire chat gives me something.

Well, what would you like to say about XFire sunset?

Tnx sister Vixon...I will try, but...But now we have Steam banned in Crimea by a lot from Internet provider due to sanction to Russia. It could be reached under proxy, which not so fast.

Buy the way, the same situation we could see in Ukraine where started to forbid and banned a lot russian social networks like Vkontakte and Odnoklassniki. Because its database of russian special intelligent services.
