ATLUS have announced that the original plan to shut down hard-as-nails RPG Demon’s Souls online servers at the end of May has been delayed, with all server operation extended indefinitely. This is fantastic news to gamers like me who haven’t gotten around to playing past the first level yet yet, despite owning it (oops).
Tim Pivnicny, ATLUS VP of Sales and Marketing, writes “While it originally seemed as though it would be unfeasible for us to continue to sustain the servers, a number of developments have made it possible for us to continue to invest in and support our fans as they have continued to invest in and support us and Demon’s Souls. For all the gamers who have yet to discover the game’s amazing online experience, we’re happy to say you can still log on and find out why Demon’s Souls is still regarded by many as one of the finest games of all time”
Classy move, ATLUS.
