Deus Ex Go will not be playable in January 2023, even if you have paid for it. three others Square Enix The games also face the chop.
Deus Ex Go is a mobile game that was released in 2016. It is a single player puzzle title and to be honest, it happens to be one of my favorite mobile games. The game is developed by Square Enix Montreal.
Deus Ex Go will be gone soon
However, following the acquisition of the Embracer Group, the studio is now known as Onoma. However, just a few weeks after it was renamed, it was announced that this studio would be shutting down. It is believed that much of its workforce will transfer to Eidos Montreal.
Sadly, it was announced this week on Onoma’s social media pages that Deus Ex Go, along with the free-to-play titles Hitman Sniper: The Shadows, Arena Battle Champions, and Space Invaders: Hidden Heroes will be unplayable on January 4th.the2023.
If the name Deus Ex Go sounds familiar, not only is it part of the popular sci-fi RPG universe, but there are two other mobile spin-offs that share the “Let’s go” brand. They are Lara Croft Go and Hitman Go. I have a feeling it’s only a matter of time until the last two games share the same fate.
Even if you paid for Deus Ex Go, you won’t be able to play it
As seen by Eurogamer, a tweet from Onoma read: “The games will be removed from the App Store/Google Play Store on December 1st and existing players will not be able to access the games after January 4th.”
He continued: “Effective immediately, in-game purchases are stopped. We recommend that previous in-game purchases be used before January 4th, as they will not be refunded.”
In addition, comments are disabled on Onoma’s tweet. It’s a shame because it means genuine customers can’t ask questions directly related to the post.
It is a sign of the digital times.
Don’t get me wrong, I like the convenience of the digital age, especially as a disabled gamer. However, this just goes to show how easy it is for publishers to wipe digital games out of existence and there’s not much we can do about it.
In more positive Deus Ex news, rumors are swirling that the cyberpunk RPG series might be making a triumphant return!
