Square Enix has some bad news for Mobius Final Fantasy players.

Square Enix has announced that they will be shutting down Mobius Final Fantasy's servers. The title will stay online until June 30th, when the game's Warrior of Despair story has concluded. The game has already ended service in Japan. Players will be able to purchase the game's premium currency, Magicites, until March 31st. Any purchased Magicites can be used until the game shuts down in June.

"We would like to express our deepest gratitude to all our players who have supported us since service began back on August 3rd, 2016," Square Enix stated. "It is with heavy heart that we must now bring you this sad news. We will continue to implement updates to in-game events, including the conclusion of the Warrior of Despair story, until the end of service, so it is our fondest hope that you will see our adventurers' fates out to the very last. Thank you for fighting alongside the Warriors of Light and for being a part of the world of Mobius Final Fantasy. May you continue to bring the light of hope to those around you."

Mobius Final Fantasy has seen its share of trouble since its release. Square Enix pulled the game from Belgium after it was cited with uncertainty over the title's gacha mechanics and the legal status of loot boxes under the country's laws. Mobius Final Fantasy's Korean servers were shut down in 2018 due to the game's small player base.

Mobius Final Fantasy first released in Japan as a free-to-play mobile title back in June 2015. The game was brought to the west in August 2016. The game was released for PC in Japan the November after, and worldwide in February 2017. Last year Square Enix had celebrated the game reaching 20 million downloads worldwide.
