Elyon is doing just fine, if by “fine” you mean a gradual descent into the city of Having No Players. If you follow metrics on Steam, the game launched on October 20 to a peak of 15,541. Since then however the game has lost over 97% of its peak player count, with yesterday’s peak numbers sitting at 441. Now Elyon launched with four languages supported; English, German, French, and Spanish.
As the population collapses and income goes deeper into the red, however, the folks at Kakao announced that they can no longer justify supporting the Spanish-speaking community. All five of them. But you already knew that if you read the headline. The use of Spanish will end on April 6 and include not just the game translations but customer support as well.
Our goal is and always has been to provide everyone with a comfortable play environment, however, maintaining language support is an ambitious endeavor. With the usage of the Spanish language being consistently low, after long consideration, we have decided to discontinue it’s support to allow us more breathing room.
If it’s any consolation to the Spanish players on Elyon who now have to quit, judging by the numbers and the trajectory of the game support for French, German, and English will be ending in the foreseeable future as well.
