Another list of beloved mobile games is closing. After being acquired by Embracer, developer Studio Onoma is shutting down servers for Deus Ex GO, Hitman Sniper: The Shadows, and more.
Unfortunately, the closure of free-to-play mobile games is common. For example, the beloved gacha game Dragalia Lost recently closed for good. However, some of Onoma’s closures include paid games on film.
The full list of games to close is as follows. Deus Ex GO, Htiman Sniper: The Shadows, Arena Battle Champions and Space Invaders: Hidden Heroes. All of these games will be removed before closing.
Announced on Twitter, Onoma will remove all of the aforementioned titles on December 1. After that, the games will be discontinued on January 4.
“Effective immediately, in-game purchases are discontinued. We encourage previous in-game purchases to be used before January 4 as they are non-refundable. “On behalf of the development team, we want to thank you for playing our games.”
The studio quickly shut down responses to the announcement tweet. However, fans of the games have still expressed their upset on social media, with some calling the move “absolute bulls**t”. We can’t say we disagree.
Of all the takedowns, Deus Ex GO is a painful one to miss. The delightful puzzle game released years ago, but it was a paid title that many are unable to play now. That’s just a bad move for anyone.
At release, Deus Ex GO cost $4.99; that’s $4.99 that players will never get back. In an age of always online garbage, it sucks to see another title go the way of the dodo because of poor decisions made years ago.
