NetEase announced on October 13th, 2021 that Crusaders of Light had been removed from digital stores on Steam, Android, and iOS and that the game would be shut down one month later on November 17th. The team’s full announcement follows:
Thank you for the tremendous support you’ve given to Crusaders of Light! In light of changes made to the development and operational strategies of the game, Crusaders of Light will soon cease operation. Details are as follows:
1. October 13, 2021, 12:00 PM (UTC+8): Download across all platforms will be disabled. Players will no longer be able to download the game.
2. October 13, 2021, 12:00 PM (UTC+8): Recharge and new user registration will be disabled.
3. November 17, 2021, 12:00 PM (UTC+8): All game operations will be terminated. Termination includes the shutting down of the game servers, the official customer service, the official website (https://netease-na.com/crusaders-of-light), the official Facebook page and its public group. These websites and communities will no longer be accessible from then on.
NOTE: After game servers have been shut down, all account data and character info (including but not limited to characters, Crystals, items, materials, and so on) will be deleted.
Thank you to everyone who has shown tremendous support to Crusaders of Light. In-game Crystals can still be used until the game is officially taken offline for good. We hope you can enjoy the game while it lasts. If you have any questions or concerns, you’re welcome to contact customer service.
Like you, we’re also extremely sad to see Crusaders of Light go. Alas, its time has come. We’d also like to apologize for any inconveniences this decision may cause. Again, thank you for your support and understanding, and we hope to see you in more great NetEase games!
Thanks to HandMaskTar for pointing out the news. I’ve added the date to the Watch List calendar and will have a page up on the site later.
