I believe this is what you call “cutting your losses”. Sega has announced that it is shutting down mobile title Sakura Kakumei: Hanasaku Otome-tachi (Sakura Revolution: Hanasaki Maidens). The free-to-play gacha game, which launched in Japan in December of last year – will be switching off its servers on June 30, a pithy six months from release.
“Since service launched, we have worked hard planning and managing events, improving game systems, and so on in efforts to provide better service,” said Sega in an official statement. “But after considering the environment surrounding the game, playability, and future developments, we have unfortunately come to the decision to end service.”
