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, Xfire has expanded to enable users to create and play in hundreds of thousands of tournaments across the globe. Attracting over 25 million users into a healthy and vibrant community, Xfire set the standard for the socialization and connection in PC / Console Games.

Thirteen 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.

But all good things must come to an end. XFire has had a great run and we can’t thank you enough for supporting us over the last 14 years. Today, with a heavy heart we turn off the lights at XFire and move on to new opportunities. See ya space cowboy...
