Just short of its one year anniversary.
Babylon’s Fall is one of those games that if you bought it at launch I may just have a bridge to sell you in Brooklyn. We mentioned back in May that the game was in the bargaining stage of death, and it looks like the proceeding four months could be chalked up to the depression stage with this month marking the final stage; acceptance.
In a post on the official website Square Enix announced that Babylon’s Fall, a game that they have spent months enthusiastically denying was under any threat of shutting down, is shutting down. Not that it’s a surprise to anyone coming from a game that hasn’t broken 100 concurrent players since June 1.
With the desire of delivering an exhilarating online multiplayer action RPG set in an elaborate high fantasy world, we launched the game’s official service on Thursday, March 3, 2022, and have continued to undertake additional development and operations. However, it is with deep regret to inform you that we will be terminating the game’s service on February 27, 2023.
As of September 13 it is no longer possible to buy premium currency, and the game itself will be pulled from digital store shelves.
