Demon’s Souls Will Finally Be Laid To Rest At The End Of May


In September of last year, Atlus USA announced that their Demon’s Souls servers would remain up and running for at least another year. Unfortunately, that won’t be the case anymore.


Today, Atlus announced that the servers for Demon’s Souls will cease operations by the end of May 31st. Prior to twice, Atlus will hold two World Tendency shift events on May 1st and May 16th, both based on votes from fans.


Demon’s Souls was originally released in October 2009. It was a breakout hit for Atlus and put developer, From Software, on the radar of many players. Since then, From have gone on to develop a follow-up title, Dark Souls, which has been published by Namco Bandai. The Demon’s Souls I.P., however, is owned by Sony.
