Babylon's Fall RIP

The PlatinumGames disaster that was Babylon's Fall will be put out of its misery on 27th February 2023 as it has been announced the game will be shut down in its entirety. No stone will be left unturned: the whole game will be rendered unplayable past the aforementioned date. Confirmed in a blog post on the game's official website, all gameplay data will be deleted.

Between now and then, the developer plans "to implement as many events and other initiatives as we can, leading up to the end of the service". However, any major updates have been cancelled. What's left is special rewards, rankings and event missions, and quest boosts. Starting today, the digital version is being taken off the PS Store and physical retailers will remove PS5, PS4 copies from their online stores. You also won't be able to buy the premium currency Garaz anymore.

Released on 3rd March 2022, termination of the service means Babylon's Fall will be playable for less than one year. "Despite all of your support, we are truly sad and sorry to say that we will be unable to continue with the game’s service," PlatinumGames said. "We hope you continue to enjoy playing Babylon's Fall until the service ends."

We very much doubt the game will be treated with the same pomp and circumstance as Red Dead Onlineplayers hosted an in-game funeral after Rockstar Game effectively ended its support of the multiplayer portion. Babylon's Fall will be taken out back and never mentioned again. PlatinumGames tried to right the ship with a second season of content, but it quite clearly wasn't enough to attract a player base.
