Due to the credit crunch and it's parent company going bust, all of the Filefront network is to be shut down by the 30th of this month.

Elite Force Files and also every file site will be closed at that time. There will be no official backup and thus, EVERYTHING will be deleted. Therefore, now is your last chance to download the files you want from that site. There is a plan by former Filefront staff to backup everything, but this is by no means confirmed, so please take this opportunity before it is too late.

EF review will act as a hub for the community until a new host can be found.

Shock is a bit of an understatement. Royally PISSED off isn't.

This will be a MASSIVE low blow to any modder who relies on filefront
to distribute their mod, not to mention gaming communities like Aliens
vs Predator 2...first the master server is shut down now this...

We can only hope that there will be a full backup and that the site domains are saved... but it will be a massive blow... EFfiles was one of the few things holding this community together

File Front back

Quote :
Welcome

FileFront has been acquired by the original founders of the site and will NOT be suspended as previously announced. This is NOT an April Fool's Joke.

After learning about Ziff Davis Media's plan to suspend FileFront at the end of March, the original founders of FileFront made the decision to buy it back from Ziff Davis Media.

We're happy to announce to the gaming community that as of today, April 1st, 2009, FileFront is a completely independent company again and is no longer part of Ziff Davis Media. All previously suspended services should be active and working again. We thank Ziff Davis Media for their cooperation and willingness to keep the site and community alive.

Due to the very unfortunate timing of this event and related announcements on March 24th and April 1st (April Fool's Day), we'd like to make it perfectly clear that:

1) 1) The March 24th announcement about FileFront suspending its operation was NOT an early April Fool's joke.

2) This announcement about the original founders buying back FileFront from Ziff Davis Media is also NOT an April Fool's joke.

3) We're making this announcement on April 1st because the deal was completed today and we want to bring all services back online immediately.

4) We would NEVER suspend FileFront as an April Fool's joke.

5) We are happy to be back!

FileFront has existed in one form or another (originally as FileLeech and Voodoo Extreme's downloads) since 1997. In the last 12 years, FileFront has become the gaming community's most comprehensive and trafficked library hosting millions of files for thousands of games while requiring no registration and providing uncapped download speeds. We look forward to improving FileFront and serving the gaming community for years to come.

Welcome home. Game On!

Email us, founders@filefront.com
