Bandai NAMCO announced on September 1st, 2022 that Bless Unleashed would be shutting down on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One 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 in January of 2022. 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.
The Bless Unleashed Team
Thank you for your loyalty and support over the years.
Now under the management of VALOFE, the Steam version of the game remains online as of this writing as the only place to play Bless Unleashed.
