"the game has been bringing in 3 billion won ($2.76 million) every quarter. “It is hard to comprehend what NCsoft means when they said they closed it for strategic reasons,” one analyst said."

Mr. Outsider, what this means is that $2.76 million wasn't enough for them. There was a dev team and running costs to be subtracted as well. Yes vs your wage Mr. Outsider that may have been a fine salary, but for a big company, in which you don't have their entire vision, it must have not been worth it to them. "Unethical game closure?" Unethical, pulleeeze. Disappointment? perhaps. Unethical? No. We have to know games can eventually be sun-setted. Hidden fee's, inaccurate meters to your cell phone? Unethical.

That said, it would be nice if something can bring the game back for those who still want to play.

Or perhaps the licensing agreement with Perfect World Entertainment ran out, and PWE asked more than was feasible to keep the game running to continue licensing. Which would jive with the sudden closure as there was a roadmap in place to continue growing the game.
