Daybreak Games has canceled PlanetSide Arena after just only 3 months.
Word comes way from Daybreak on Steam, where they officially confirm that servers will shut down on January 10th, 2020. The company has been going through a lot, since 2016 alone they’ve had H1Z1 (Just Survive) shut down, Landmark was also shut down, and EverQuest Next was canceled, and the studio was hit with an insane amount of layoffs.
After careful consideration, we’ve made the difficult decision to shut down PlanetSide Arena servers.
While our team set out with an ambitious vision for a game that combined the massive-scale combat and camaraderie of PlanetSide through a diverse collection of new game modes, it has become clear after several months in Early Access that our population levels make it impossible to sustain the gameplay experience we envisioned.
As a result, PlanetSide Arena will formally shut down servers on January 10th, 2020 at 5:00 PM (PST). We are actively working with Steam to ensure that all players who made purchases during Early Access will automatically receive a full refund to their Steam Wallet after servers shut down in January.Andy Sites, Executive Producer
Since their departure in 2015 from Sony Interactive Entertainment, it’s just been rough. Now with PlanetSide Arena ending development, all that is left is PlanetSide 3.
PlanetSide Arena was originally planned for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
