Daybreak Games announces
the sun is setting on PlanetSide Arena
, saying servers for the
free-to-play MMOFPS will shut down on January 10th. As of today all DLC and
currency purchase options are no longer available, and they say that all players
who made real-money purchases can keep their goods while the game remains
playable, but that they will receive full refunds in their Steam Wallets once
the game ends for good. Here's more on what's happening from Executive Producer
After careful consideration, we’ve made the difficult decision
to shut down PlanetSide Arena servers.
While our team set out with an ambitious vision for a game that combined the
massive-scale combat and camaraderie of PlanetSide through a diverse collection
of new game modes, it has become clear after several months in Early Access that

As a result, PlanetSide Arena will formally shut down servers on January 10th,
2020 at 5:00 PM (PST). We are actively working with Steam to ensure that all
players who made purchases during Early Access will automatically receive a full
refund to their Steam Wallet after servers shut down in January.
Thank you again for your loyalty and support during Beta and Early Access. Your
feedback was invaluable, and your enduring passion for PlanetSide remains the
bedrock our community is built upon. As painful as it is to close this chapter
so quickly, we remain deeply committed to this franchise, and look forward to
continuing this journey through the PlanetSide Universe with all of you.
