The team at Thirdverse announced on April 14th, 2022 on Twitter that only the PlayStation VR version of Swords of Gargantua would be removed from sale and shut down later in the year. The game was scheduled to be removed from the PlayStation Store on June 30th with the game shutting down entirely on September 30th. The team’s announcement follows:
Thank you for your continued support of “Swords of Gargantua”. This announcement is to inform our users that the PlayStation VR version of “Swords of Gargantua” will discontinue its service on September 30, 2022.
After this date, you will no longer be able to play the PlayStation VR version of “Swords of Gargantua” app, but can still continue to enjoy the Meta Quest and PCVR versions of the game. The development team would like to thank everyone who has enjoyed the PlayStation VR version since its launch on the platform.
<Service Termination Schedule>
June 30, 2022: End of sales on PlayStation Store
September 30, 2022: End of PlayStation VR version service@GargantuaVR tweet, April 14, 2022
Although Swords of Gargantua included a single-player mode it required access to a server in order to launch. After September 30th the game became completely unplayable on PlayStation VR.
No further explanation was given by Thirdverse at the time. The delisting may have come after deciding to no longer support the PlayStation platform where Swords of Gargantua was Thirdverse’s only title. The delisting may also be related to advancements planned for the remaining VR versions of the game that the PlayStation VR hardware was unable to support.
