PlatinumGames deeply regrets the conclusion of Babylon’s Fall but is not changing the live service plans

PlatinumGames regrets the imminent shutdown of Babylon’s Fall servers, but also notes that this will not impact future live service plans.

In an interview with VGC, PlatinumGames CEO Atsushi Inaba said: “The only thing we can comment on here regarding the closure of Babylon’s Fall service itself is that this unfortunate conclusion may have been something that caused some disappointment , maybe even anger, to our dedicated fans and players.”

He continued, “And for any disappointment that we may have caused to our fanbase, we are deeply sorry for the fact that as developers, we made our dedicated fans think that way. Giving players anything other than joy and fun in our creations is something we, as developers, are not at all happy about.”

Unfortunately, Inaba was unable to provide specifics on the Babylon’s Fall shutdown, noting that it’s up to Square Enix to share more details about it.

However, despite the game’s failure, PlatinumGames intends to continue investing in live service games. “We learned a lot from this experience and it hasn’t changed at all our future plans or prospects in terms of running live service games. Live service games are definitely something we want to do and are putting our effort into moving forward,” explains Inaba.

He goes on to explain that live service games have two pillars: the entertaining game mechanics and the live service elements. Both need to be strongly aligned to create a good experience.

He concludes: “Otherwise, if one of them is rated higher or if they aren’t connected, things usually don’t turn out the way we would have liked. We want to focus on maintaining this connection and balance between these two pillars in the future.”

Babylon’s Fall was released in early February this year to negative reviews, and the studio recently announced that the online servers will be shutting down a year later on February 28, 2023.
