Another list of beloved mobile games will be shutting down. Following its acquisition by Embracer, developer Studio Onoma will be closing servers for Deus Ex GO, Hitman Sniper: The Shadows and more.
Unfortunately, the closure of free-to-play mobile games is commonplace. For example, the beloved gacha game Dragalia Lost recently closed for good. However, some of Onoma’s shutdowns include paid games on movie.
The full list of games to be shut down is as follows. Deus Ex GO, Htiman Sniper: The Shadows, Arena Battle Champions and Space Invaders: Hidden Heroes. All of these games will be delisted before they’re shut down.
Announced on Twitter, Onoma is delisting all of the aforementioned titles on December 1st. Afterwards, the games will shut down on January 4th.
“Effective immediately, in-game purchases are stopped. We encourage prior in-game purchases to be used before January 4th, as they will not be refunded,” the developer said. “On behalf of the development team, we would like to thank you for playing our games.”
The studio quickly turned off replies to its announcement tweet. However, fans of the games have still displayed their upset on social media with some calling the move “absolute bulls**t”. We can’t say we disagree.
Out of all of the delistings, Deus Ex GO is a sore one to miss. The delightful puzzle game released years ago, but it was a paid title that many will now be unable to play. That’s just a bad move for everyone.
Upon release, Deus Ex GO cost $4.99; that’s $4.99 players will never get back. In a time of always online crap, it sucks to see another title go the way of the dodo due to bad decisions made years ago.
