Square Enix has announced that it will end service and close servers for Platinum Games’ Babylon’s Fall on the 27th of February 2023, making the game unplayable across all platforms. All data stored on the game’s servers will be deleted once the service is terminated.
Square Enix has also confirmed that sales of the game, both physically and digitally, will be halted and so will the Garaz microtransactions. Square Enix will proceed with the third season of content and plans to release as many events as possible until the end of the service, the premium battle pass sales will also end with the second season so the third season should be free for everyone.
Babylon’s Fall was released on the 25th of February 2022 for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5 and PC. It failed to meet sales expectations and sold around 5,000 physical copies in its opening week in Japan.

Greetings Sentinel Force,
Thank you very much for playing BABYLON’S FALL.
With the desire of delivering an exhilarating online multiplayer action RPG set in an elaborate high fantasy world, we launched the game’s official service on Thursday, March 3, 2022, and have continued to undertake additional development and operations. However, it is with deep regret to inform you that we will be terminating the game’s service on February 27, 2023.
As a result, we will also cancel the large-scale updates that we had planned. In terms of the plan moving forward, Season 2 will run until Tuesday, November 29, 2022, as scheduled, and the Final Season will begin with the maintenance scheduled on the same day. This Final Season is the period during which you can earn the ranking rewards of Season 2.
As a way of expressing our gratitude to all our players, we plan to implement as many events and other initiatives as we can, leading up to the end of the service.
