Atlus keeps fun alive by extending Demon's Souls' servers

0

Demon's Souls' servers were all set to go to sleep on May 31st, 2012, but Atlus has just informed us today that the said servers are going to be extended "for the foreseeable future". For those of you who aren't familiar with the game, Demon's Souls basically allowed you to play online with other players, not only for PVP purposes, but for coop play as well (both directly and indirectly, through in-game "notes" and tips left by other players).

Atlus' Tim Pivnicny, VP of Marketing and Sales, had this to say: "While it originally seemed as though it would be unfeasible for us to continue to sustain the servers, a number of developments have made it possible for us to continue to invest in and support our fans as they have continued to invest in and support us and Demon's Souls."

The Souls series are two of my favorite games of all time, so it's nice to see good things on the horizon for From Software. Between this news, Dark Souls' solid sales numbers, and an upcoming PC port, the prospect of a third Souls game seems to be in the cards.
