Through a statement, Sony Interactive Entertainment Japan Asia confirmed that they will soon end the online services of Demon’s Souls in Japan. This RPG debuted in 2009 for PlayStation 3 and in a short time it stood out for its high level of difficulty. It also served as the basis for important future projects of From Software.
Japanese players will not be able to access the online features of Demon’s Souls starting next year. To be exact, this will happen on February 28. The end of these services implies the disabling of the online multiplayer, both in cooperative and in invasions mode. In addition, it will no longer be possible to write or read messages.
Additionally, the Bloodstains or the repetitions of the deaths of the other players, as well as the rankings, will disappear. All these services began operating in Japan on February 2, 2009.
In the West, ATLUS is responsible for the servers of the game. At the time of writing, the company has not yet confirmed whether the end of services will be global. So, you can still enjoy the RPG without problems. However, there is a possibility that online functions are later disabled in the West. We will keep you informed about it.
Previously, ATLUS decided to close these servers on May 31, 2012; however, at the request of the players, he chose to keep them active for longer.
