ATLUS Server Shutdown 2012 (ongoing, messages preserved here for posterity)
Game announcement from March1 through mid-May 2012:
At the end of May 31st, 2012, the Demon's Souls online servers will shut down forever.
We will let members of our ATLUS Faithful mailing list vote on what the World Tendency should shift to, once for May 1-15, and again for May 16-21. We invite all users to log in on May 31st to join us in celebrating and remembering.
Thank you to all of you, you brave adventurers of Boletaria, for your messages, your bloodstains, your alliances, your invasions. You made Demon's Souls the amazing online experience it was.
We are honored to have been a part of it, and we are forever grateful for you passion, dedication, and support.
The results of the voting determined the first half of May as PWWT, the second half as PBWT, but Pure Black did not occur after May 15th.
Game announcement late May 2012:
Originally scheduled to shut down at the end of May, 2012, server operation has been extended.
We are excited to be able to continue to invest in and support our fans as they have continued to invest in and support us and Demon's Souls. Future extensions of the North American servers are possible, provided user activity and interest remain constant.
