Darkfall — the official version, not its up-and-coming player-run spinoffs — has gone offline indefinitely, according to a new post on the official forums.
Dear friends, We have been involved with Darkfall for over 13 years now and it is our hope that we will be able to continue well into the future with your support. Unfortunately, and against our best efforts, the conditions in Greece have caught up with us and do not allow us to continue operating the game as we have been so far. We hope that the disruption of Darkfall Unholy Wars service is temporary and that we will be back soon in a more sustainable format. We apologize for the inconvenience to all that are affected.
Redditors speculate that the small Aventurine dev team in Greece has already been going without wages and that a lack of funds is the culprit. Though there’s some hope the game might return, players are already posting their farewells on the official forums.
