Bigpoint Games and Artplant announced the end for Battlestar Galactica Online on January 1st, 2019 according to reporting from BleedingCool and MMOBomb.com. Links to official confirmation are hard to come by as the announcement seems to have been made in-game and sent only to players with active forum accounts.
According to reports, the game was unavailable to download no later than January 31st, 2019 and the servers were shut down by February 1st. BleedingCool.com found the following statement that was allegedly delivered to players upon logging into the game’s forums:
We´ve given this a lot of thoughts and consideration and are sad to announce that by latest end of January we will be discontinuing Battlestar Galactica Online.
This means that after that date you will no longer be able to play Battlestar Galactica Online; we assure you that making this decision was not easy for us. We also apologize for keeping you waiting for so long with an announcement concerning the future of the game.
We wanted to take the time to consider all possible options but after all efforts, it became clear that we will no longer be able to run Battlestar Galactica Online.
We thank you for your countless hours of dedication whether you were playing the game, reporting bugs or posting on our forums and the social media channels.
We hope you will continue with us on the next journey and play our upcoming Bigpoint games.
Thank you for being such an amazing and awesome community!
