Demon’s Souls going offline next month

Demon’s Souls‘ North American servers are on the verge of closure, Atlus has announced.

Scheduled to go offline next month, on May 31st, the publishers calls the decision regrettable: “Regrettably, the online servers cannot be sustained forever and now the end draws near,” says the company’s vice president of sales and marketing Tim Pivnicny.

“Thank you to the unparalleled passion and support of the Demon’s Souls community throughout these last two and a half years,. The online adventure may end soon, but the memory of it–just like that of every boss strategy, every level floor plan, and hidden secret–lives on in the gamers for whom the game was so special.”

The successor to Demon’s Souls, Dark Souls, has just been confirmed for PC complete with new content.
