Ubisoft announced on November 6th, 2015 via the game’s official forum that their free-to-play title Spartacus Legends would shut down on December 22nd, 2015, with in-app purchases being disabled on the date of the announcement.
To our Dedicated Fans,
As we prepare for the finale of Spartacus Legends on December 22nd 2015, we would like to thank you for your passion and dedication. We are indebted to you our Spartacus Legends community with gratitude for your honor, participation and commitment over the last few years.
The maintenance currently being performed on PlayStation 3 is in preparation for this conclusion. Once the maintenance is complete, you will no longer be able to purchase gold or silver from the Bank and all previous gold only items for purchase will include a silver price as well. Until the finale, you will continue to be able to earn and use gold and silver to purchase items for your ludus.Black_Widow9, Community Representative of Ubisoft
No definitive reason was given for the game’s closure, but it may have been the result of waning player counts and microtransaction sales or the expired licensing of Starz Media’s Spartacus to Ubisoft.
