Deadman’s Cross was delisted on PlayStation Vita on September 30th, 2015. Just seven months from release, Square Enix updated their support channels with the following confirmation:

Thank you for playing Deadman’s Cross (PlayStation®Vita version).

After careful consideration, service for the PlayStation®Vita version of Deadman’s Cross will come to an end on Sept. 30, 2015. As the Deadman’s Cross dev team and staff, we would like to express our deepest gratitude for your patronage of our game.

The smartphone version of Deadman’s Cross continues to enjoy popularity, and service will continue for that version. Since it is possible to transfer the save data from your PlayStation®Vita version over to the smartphone version, it is our hope that you will continue to enjoy playing Deadman’s Cross, this time on a smartphone. Therefore, in appreciation of our PlayStation®Vita version players, we have prepared a Migrate to Smartphone Version Campaign.

The Deadman’s Cross Team

The announcement alludes to a disappointing active player count on the Vita and Square Enix chose to focus the team’s resources on the Android and iOS versions of the game. Deadman’s Cross celebrated its three-year anniversary in February of 2017 before all versions were shut down on July 31st, 2017. The final message from the team read:

Service for Deadman’s Cross (English version) will come to an end on Jul. 30, 2017 8:00 p.m. (PDT) / Jul. 30, 2017 11:00 p.m. (EDT) / Jul. 31, 2017 3:00 a.m. (GMT) / Jul. 31, 2017 12:00 p.m. (JST).

We wish to thank the many users who played Deadman’s Cross since the start of its service in 2014.

The development and managing team wishes to thank our users for their patronage for over three long years, which allowed service to continue up until now.
