Developer and publisher Double Eleven announced on December 2nd, 2020 that Frozen Synapse Prime’s multiplayer features and dedicated servers would be shut down on March 11th, 2021. The game was removed from sale on Steam the next day. By December 25th it was delisted on the PlayStation Store in Australia and Europe although the ‘Frozen Synapse Prime Soundtrack Edition’ bundle could still be purchased from the old PlayStation Store website until February of 2021. The brief Steam announcement follows:
We will be deactivating our Frozen Synapse Prime dedicated servers on 11th March 2021. This means that all Online Modes will be unplayable and will be innaccessible from the Main Menu. You will still be able to enjoy all single-players modes and the game will not be removed from your library to download. We’d just like to thank everyone who has enjoyed Frozen Synapse Prime since it’s release back in 2014.Double Eleven
Frozen Synapse Prime was previously delisted on iOS and Android, leaving PlayStation 3 and Vita as the only platforms where it remains available to buy until March 11th, 2021. English-language store pages for the game have been updated with the following notice:
Frozen Synapse Prime will be unavailable to purchase from the PlayStation Store and dedicated online servers will be shut down from 11th March 2021. All Online Multiplayer will be inaccessible but will still appear in the Main Menu. You will still be able to download the game from your library and enjoy any single-player modes.
The delisting is likely related to licensing of the Frozen Synapse property from its creators at Mode 7. The operating costs of dedicated servers, which have been sparsely populated since the game launched, likely contributed to the delisting.
