Today Nintendo and Cygames announced that the mobile JRPG Dragalia Lost is due to shut down about four years after its release in September 2018.
The announcement mentions that the game, which is currently available for iOS and Android and published by Nintendo, will reach the conclusion of its story in July 2022, and service will be terminated afterward.
You can check out the full announcement below.
“The Dragalia Lost main campaign is scheduled to reach its conclusion in July of 2022 with part two of chapter 26, the final and climactic addition to its long-running story. After the main campaign has concluded, service for the game itself will come to a close at a later date. Further details on the end-of-service schedule will be provided in a future notification.
After the final set of new adventurers is added in a summon showcase scheduled for 03/31/2022 at 08:00, the game will not receive any new content updates aside from those for the main campaign and certain quests. Please note that summon showcases for existing adventurers and dragons, as well as event revivals, will continue to be made available until service has ended.
The Dragalia Lost team would like to thank each and every one of our players, past and present, for your love of and support for Dragalia Lost since its launch. It is our sincere hope that you have enjoyed your experience with the game from the moment you started playing it, and we will strive to ensure that you continue to do so for as long as time allows.”
The reasons for the shutdown have not been announced, but unfortunately Dragalia Lost won’t come close to the long-running success of Cygames’ other mobile JRPG, Granblue Fantasy, which has just celebrated its 8th anniversary.
