Earlier this year, ATLUS announced that Demon’s Souls servers would go the way of the dodo around the end of May. Well, it’s the end of May and now ATLUS is singing a different tune.
Tim Pivnicny, the Vice President of Marking and Sales at ATLUS, had the following to say:
We’re incredibly excited to be able to announce that the Demon’s Souls online experience will persist for a while longer. 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.
Keep in mind that just because they are staying online for the unforeseeable future, it doesn’t mean that it won’t go offline down the road. I’d assume they will be safe until a sequel to Dark Souls is released, then you should get worried. If you haven’t collected all your platinum trophies already, now would be a good time
