Asheron's Call Games Ending

The Asheron's Call Facebook page announces that Turbine is putting an end to Asheron's Call and Asheron's Call 2 on January 31st, ending a lengthy run for both MMORPGs. This follows word that they are handing off responsibility for The Lord of the Rings Online and Dungeons & Dragons Online, and new indie studio Standing Stone Games will run both
MMORPGs. Here's word on the end of both Asheron's Call games:

It is with a heavy heart that we must announce the end of our support for Asheron's Call and Asheronís Call 2, and will close both services on January 31st, 2017.
This decision did not come easy, and we know this is disappointing for many of you. This game is a labor of love, and it's not easy for us to bring it to an end.

We have had a phenomenally long run; one of the longest in the world of MMORPGs, and that in and of itself is a spectacular feat. We are proud of our legacy, and the entire Asheron's Call team has been honored to adventure with you for nearly twenty years. We thank you very much for being a part of it.

Itís been an amazing run. Youíve done Asheron Realaidain proud.

Between now and January 31st, 2017, the game will remain available to play, completely free, for any player currently with an account. New account creation will be disabled.
