Mobius Final Fantasy players devastated by server shutdown
Square Enix will shut down Mobius Final Fantasy’s global servers on June 30, the mobile game’s operations team announced on Jan. 15. Players received notice this morning that the game’s “Warrior of Despair” story will conclude with the server shutdown in June.
“It is with heavy heart that we must now bring you this sad news,” Square Enix wrote. “We will continue to implement updates to in-game events, including the conclusion of the Warrior of Despair story, until the end of service, so it is our fondest hope that you will see our adventurers’ fates out to the very last.”
Mobius Final Fantasy is a free-to-play mobile role-playing game that was released in Japan in 2015; it was released globally in August 2016. In 2017, it came to Steam as a Final Fantasy 7 Remake tie-in. Mobius Final Fantasy is a “gacha” game — like the capsule-toy vending machines. Players use in-game currency, “Magicite” or tickets in Mobius Final Fantasy, to pull collectible cards.
