It’s almost time to say goodbye to both versions of Defiance, and while fans of the sci-fi shooting MMO may be reveling in the game’s final schedule of events, ultimately the game will go dark, the timing of which has officially been shared.
The Defiance servers will turn off at 5:00 a.m. EDT on Thursday, April 29th. Glyph accounts won’t be affected (naturally) and the post invites players of the game to check out Gamigo’s other titles as way to cope with Defiance’s closure.
Defiance was, in synopsis, something of a grand experiment hooked to a middling shooter MMO. The game was linked to a television show of the same name, but was noted by one of our columnists as a program that suffered from tonal whiplash over its three-season run, while the game itself got to a point that was described as “a wall of the most ungodly grinding […] ever seen in a modern game.” That said, the game’s setting was also one with potential, even if its extended stagnation meant the writing was on the wall for a long time. It will be missed.
