Many games shut down because the revenue is too low and/or the monthly players are too small.

 

I hope this game won't be like the many other games which got shut down because of the above reasons!! Could a developer answer this and get a define answer if there could be a possibility of shut down due to low monthly players/revenue?

As long as the game covers the cost of the servers/etc, it won't shut down.   Given that the developers are still releasing new content/updates it's extremely unlikely that the game will shut down anytime in the near future.   Indeed new/content updates are a sign of a healthy playerbase/revenue stream.    Warfare Online went down because it wasn't covering server costs.

 

Player numbers by themselves mean nothing.   There are games that have been up and running for 10+ years, have a small (<1000) but dedicated playerbase and they're still up and running with no real signs of shutting down.

I always find it interesting lots of the old faces you suddenly see in trade when there's an update on the Dead Zone, or you notice an old hand you never see much around has levelled up, meaning they are still active, be it perhaps a lot less active, but still around. This game seems to have a charm that is a staying power.

If flash shuts down in 2020 though, that would probably shut the game down, unless they switch platform.

Flash is not going to "shut down". They are going to stop offering support and updates for it.

If the game is so buggy and glitchy as it is right now with Adobe supporting and updating Flash Player... I really don't wanna imagine how it would be once they stop.

Short term?  No change

 

Intermediate Term? (2-3) years.   Still no change.  While that article lists a date of 2020 as the time flash will be "phased out" by,  that's just the time that Adobe will stop supporting it.   After that time frame, developers/users can still use it, but there won't be any support for it.

 

Long term (3-10) years.   Probably no change.  While flash won't be updated, Browsers like Firefox/Chrome will likely still allow you to "click to enable flash"

 

Very long term (10+ years)   Hello Flash-box?  Assuming the servers are even still up and running at that point.
