Bandai Namco Entertainment has just shared the sad news that Counterplay Games‘ Duelyst will cease operations on February 27th. As the game requires access to its servers to operate (even for AI battles), the shutdown will effectively render it unplayable, which is why the publisher is offering refunds for in-game items purchased in the period of time between December 21st, 2019 and January 24th, 2020.
Official announcement follows:
We are saddened to announce that the Duelyst servers will be shutting down permanently on February 27th, 2020 at 3:00 PM PST. Saying goodbye to any game is never easy, and it’s always hardest when you love the game as much as we all love Duelyst. We’re incredibly proud of the effort our developers have put in on Duelyst over the years, and even more proud of the amazing community of friends and gamers that have enjoyed Duelyst.
We want to thank all of you for being a part of the Duelyst family, and for making our time working on Duelyst the amazing adventure it has been.
To celebrate the life of Duelyst, we’ll be making some changes to see the game out on its path to the sunset. Please see the Service Closure details below:
