Eden Eternal becomes the third MMORPG Gamigo killed off today

Right about now, a whole bunch of Gamigo MMORPGs are wishing they had to deal with only server merges. That’s because Gamigo’s now axed a third (or fourth, depending how you count ’em) MMO in addition to Defiance’s two versions and Twin Saga – now it’s Eden Eternal.

“After 10 years in Eden Eternal full of peaks and valleys together, peace finally came, and we have reached the Eden Eternal,” the studio said. “Today, with a heavy heart, we are sad to announce that Eden Eternal will officially cease all operations on April 29, 2021.”

As with the other games, the company says it’s shuttering the game because it could “no longer sustain itself” (or themselves, in the case of Defiance). In fact, an almost identical form letter was used for all the the games, alongside the perks for players.

“While we are discontinuing the game’s service, we will never forget the incredible journey we embarked on together. It is never easy to announce the shutdown of any game, knowing how much time and effort we have all put into making Eden Eternal enjoyable for many years. Starting on February 24, 2021, we will close the registration of new accounts, including the disabling of cash purchases.”

Gamigo games that are apparently safe right now include Aura Kingdom, Grand Fantasia, ArcheAge, RIFT, Trove, Desert Operations, Shaiya, Echo of Soul, Fiesta Online, Wolf Team, and inexplicably Atlas Rogues; it does appear that all of the doomed games came from the Trion Worlds and Aeria Games acquisitions. Gamigo’s parent company recently purchased KingsIsle Entertainment and its duo of kid MMOs, Pirate101 and Wizard101.

I wonder if they will do what King did when they shutdown Paradise Bay? King gave all players a huge amount of the premium cash.
The author does not list Last Chaos as being safe. So maybe the end for that game is near.

Wow I had just randomly reinstalled Defiance over the weekend. I think I lasted about an hour in game, but yeah… crazy.

I personally think any time that a company shuts down and MMO they should release the source code with the amendment of people being able to host private servers as long as they do not collect a penny of money from it.

Gamigo have assets to marvel heroes omega. they bring that game back with a Nintendo switch port they get easy money for the next 2 years easy, longer if they put in dev time to generate new content!
Squeenix Avengers bombed hard and there’s no real marvel mmo ATM!

Sad to say feels like this is the beginning of a trend.

Wow I really loved this game when I played it almost 10 years ago. Sad to see it go, I’m going to reinstall to see it one last time.

Three (four if you count two versions of Defiance) killed off in the same day, man.
That’s real rough for the player bases of each to be all knifed at once.

I remember playing a little of Eden Eternal in high-school, it was cute, one of those classic games of this style which felt like it was and will be around forever.

Say what you want about Gamigo closing these titles, I can’t remember the last time a publisher gave out freebies in their other titles after shutting something down. Maybe NCSoft back during the Tabula Rasa days of 2009-2010’ish. It seemed expected back then. Daybreak just gives everyone the middle finger now.

They have to keep Rift, Aura, and Archeage and Trove right? They seem like the only deal they have going for the forseeable future. Right?

If Gamigo’s heart gets any heavier, it may just stop beating.
