Remember Defiance? I do, it had one of the most annoying inventory management systems I have had the displeasure of experiencing in games. Well, Trion's MMO, which was originally a tie-in with the Sci-fi TV show of the same name, is closing for good. Not sure how it actually lasted so long. MMOs really are falling out of favour these days.
To our loyal Defiance and Defiance 2050 Communities,
Since the release of Defiance 8 years ago, followed by the release of Defiance 2050 3 years ago, we have shared countless gaming memories. Today we come to you with hearts heavy with sadness as we announce that Defiance and Defiance 2050 will officially cease all operations on April 29, 2021.
This decision was not an easy one to make. We concluded that both games could no longer sustain themselves.
While we are discontinuing the games 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 Defiance and Defiance 2050 enjoyable for many years.
As of today, all cash purchases will be disabled. Bits already purchased before February 24, 2021 will still be usable until the end of service.
Players may continue to play in Defiance and Defiance 2050 and enjoy all game features until April 29, 2021.
