Planetside Arena closes its servers four months after its launch
Although PlanetSide Arena only came out in Early Access on September 19, it seems that its journey will not go much further. The game’s developer, Daybreak Games, has confirmed that her ambitious sci-fi aesthetic shooter (known above all for wanting to offer battles of 1,000 players per game) will close its servers forever on January 10, 2020. “It is impossible to keep the playable experience we had in mind, ”acknowledged Andy Site, executive producer of the title.
With a view to closing, the studio has already removed all DLCs from the game from Steam and is “actively working” with Valve to ensure that anyone who has purchased downloadable content within the title “automatically receives a refund in their wallets during these months” of Steam. ” Daybreak Games has issued a brief statement through the forums of the store in which it says that “after several months in Early Access, it has become clear that with the number of players we have it is impossible to keep the idea we had in mind” .
