So long, Allods Online; you will be remembered. The Russian-made fantasy MMO is shutting down… in China. The English servers are still just fine. We probably should have specified that. Yes, the game is going away after three years of operation, with the shutdown planned for late August and a slow shutdown along the way.
The end of August coincides with the end of the contract that Chinese publisher Giant Interactive held with Allods Team, so it may be more accurate to say that the publisher simply declined to renew that contract for another period of time. Western games have a tendency to not last very long in China, but still, our sympathies to any players in the country losing their preferred game.[Source: MMOCulture]
