Atlus to Continue Online Servers For Demon’s Souls Until 2012

Atlus to Continue Online Servers For Demon’s Souls Until 2012

Atlus announced today that the online server support for the highly popular and punishing hit PS3 title Demon’s Souls will continue on throughout the rest of this year and into next year as well. This isn’t the first time that the multiplayer action RPG title has seen extensions. Since its release in 2009, Atlus has continued to lengthen the server’s life to allow those who still enjoy their experiences in the game and those late to the party. Aram Jabbari, Manager of PR and Sales, commented:

“While it comes at significant cost to us and although it has been over two years since the game revolutionized the notion of multiplayer and online functionality in an RPG. Our commitment to the game and the fans that turned it into an incredible success remains as strong as ever.  While the reality is that one day the servers will ultimately close due to operation and maintenance costs, that day is not today, nor will it be this year.  We’re excited to continue to support one of the most significant, influential games in recent memory into its third year, and we’re planning to hold more tendency events for our loyal, beloved fans.  If you’ve been waiting to try Demon’s Souls or held off with concern that it was too late to join in, the truth is that there’s never been a better time to see what all the talk and awards are all about.”

This wasn’t the only news regarding Demon’s Souls. In fact, Atlus told us of plans for a Pure White and Pure Black tendencies during the holiday season. More details about that will be revealed later on.
