Bless Unleashed shutting down on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One November 30th

Bandai NAMCO announced over this past week that the free-to-play PlayStation 4 and Xbox One MMO Action RPG, Bless Unleashed, will be shutting down on November 30th. Launched in 2020 in collaboration with NEOWIZ, the game apparently didn’t generate the player base or income they expected, handing off management of the PC version to Asian publisher VALOFE back in January. The console-specific announcement from Bandai NAMCO follows:

We’ve been publishing Bless Unleashed in partnership with Round8 since 2020, and we’ve enjoyed our time with our wonderful players. Unfortunately, this time is coming to an end. Our agreement with Round8 has come to an end, and we will not be able to continue supporting the game. This was a hard decision for us, but we will be closing the servers at the end of November. What this means for you:

– We will continue to provide support through our ticketing and live chat system through the end of the year.

– The servers will remain open until November 30, 11 AM Pacific time.

On November 30, 11 AM Pacific time, the servers will close for the final time.

– Starting September 1, Lumena and other items will no longer be available from the Sony or Microsoft stores.

– Starting September 1, all items in the in-game Lumena shop will be discounted to 1 Lumena.

– We will continue to run in-game GM events until the servers close.

Thank you for your loyalty and support over the years.

The Bless Unleashed Team

Now under the management of VALOFE, it appears that the Steam version of the game will remain online for the time being as the only place to play Bless Unleashed after November 30th. While in-game purchases have been disabled, anyone interested in the console versions can still jump in for free until November. I’ve added the date to the Watch List calendar and will have a page up on the site later. Thanks to @Roc6d for pointing out the news.
