RIFT China closing in November

RIFT closing in China
According to a translation at MMO Culture, Shanda Games will be shutting down RIFT China on November 15, 2013.

After an unsuccessful push to keep the pay-to-play model alive in China, Shanda cryptically cites "several reasons" as the purpose behind the closure. RIFT's Korean version has fared no better, closing on April 25th of this year, and recent studio closures in San Diego and Europe worry fans of the fantasy MMO.
