Atlus' PS3-exclusive 'Demons' Souls'.
Video game publisher Atlus has scrapped plans to take down the servers that host the North American online portions of its 2009 video game Demons' Souls. The servers were originally scheduled to be shut down at the end the day on May 31, 2012. With this latest announcement, Atlus says the servers will now continue to operate for the foreseeable future.
"We're incredibly excited to be able to announce that the Demon's Souls online experience will persist for a while longer," stated Tim Pivnicny, Vice President of Marketing and Sales. "While it originally seemed as though it would be unfeasible for us to continue to sustain the servers, a number of developments have made it possible for us to continue to invest in and support our fans as they have continued to invest in and support us and Demon's Souls."
ATLUS did not rule out the possibility of future extensions of the North American servers, provided user activity and interest remain constant.
Demons' Souls is rated "M for Mature" by the ESRB.
