Forsaken World was first delisted from Steam on March 31st, 2017 presumably to shift the small player base to the dedicated PC version of the game. The follow-up, Forsaken World: Gods and Demons, wouldn’t release on Steam until 2021. Gearbox Publishing and Perfect World then announced on April 28th, 2022 that Forsaken World would be shutting down on all PC and mobile platforms later that year on November 30th.

It is with great sadness and a heavy heart that we announce the upcoming shutdown of all Forsaken World (FW) servers on November 30th, 2022. On that day, your FW character will no longer be accessible.

This was a very difficult decision to make, but we are grateful for the love, support, and dedication you have poured into the game and all the wonderful communities that have come from FW. We no longer feel there is room for FW to flourish and grow. As amends to our most dedicated fans, we are making sure to offer refunds for the last few months.

Effective April 28 at 2 PM PT, the ability to purchase currency for FW will no longer be available. All FW purchases from March 1st, 2022 through April 28th, 2022 will be converted into Arc credit and allocated to your account. These Arc credits can be used in other Gearbox Publishing games: Perfect World International, Neverwinter, Star Trek Online, and Champions Online. Arc Points used towards FW during this same time period, will also be refunded to your Arc point balance. The refund processing will begin in May and take approximately one month to complete. As an additional thank you to the community, from May 11, 2022 until November 30, 2022 an assortment of items will be added to the boutique at their largest possible discount.

Thank you for your loyalty and support to FW over the last eleven years!

ArcGames Announcement – April 28, 2022

Like the Steam version, it is assumed that the decision to shut the game down was based on the dwindling number of active players and in-game purchases for the free-to-play game.
