Babylon’s Fall Is Shutting Down Less Than a Year After Launch

 Babylon’s Fall Is Shutting Down Less Than a Year After Launch

After much fanfare and communication from the developers that Babylon’s Fall was not, in fact, dead and would keep on being supported, it was announced today by designer PlatinumGames and publisher Square Enix that Babylon’s Fall is, in fact, dead and will keep on being supported going ahead. All the more specifically, Babylon’s Fall is set to terminate service on February 28, 2023.
This announcement should come as little surprise to many, of course. At one point earlier this year, Babylon’s Fall had a single player signed on Steam just months after launch. At another point, there were none at all. The developers had previously expanded the second season of the computer game to reevaluate and address problems with the title, however while Season 2 will end on November 29th, there will be no further large-scale updates that were previously planned.

It is with deep regret that we are terminating the game’s service on February 28, 2023.
Please read our full Notice for further information.
Thank you so much for your support and playing BABYLON’S FALL.

“With the desire of conveying an exhilarating on the web multiplayer action RPG set in an elaborate high fantasy world, we launched the game’s official service on Thursday, March 3, 2022, and have kept on undertaking additional turn of events and operations,” the official announcement reads in part. “Notwithstanding, it is with profound lament to illuminate you that we will end the game’s service on February 27, 2023.”

Following the game’s service finishing off with February 2023, it will as of now not be playable. Additionally, the Hanging Garden player site will close around then and all gameplay data will be erased after Babylon’s Fall closes. Sales of the game’s digital premium cash, Garaz, have been suspended as of today and sales of the Superior Battle Pass will end on November 29th when Babylon’s Fall’s final season begins.

As verified above, Babylon’s Fall is officially set to shut down on February 27, 2023 at 11PM PT – – making it 2AM ET the next day. Until further notice, the game remains playable on the PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, and PC for anyone that previously purchased it, yet sales of the digital version have ceased as well as new sales of the physical version on retailer sites. You can look at all of our previous coverage of the computer game itself here.
