If you’re part Demon’s Souls strong cult following, you’ll be happy to know that ATLUS has decided to keep the U.S. servers online for “the foreseeable future”. While no exact date has been set, it’s certainly good news as the servers were originally to be turned off at the end of May.
We’re incredibly excited to be able to announce that the Demon’s Souls online experience will persist for a while longer,” said Tim Pivnicny, Vice President of Marketing and Sales. “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.”
If the user activity remains constant, ATLUS may continue to keep the servers online. Get off Diablo III and keep this game alive.
