From a hugely ambitious Buy-to-Play MMORPG to a Free-to-Play title, Elyon (formerly A:IR) has seen big ups and massive downs. That rollercoaster ride has come to an end, as publisher Kakao Games today announced the closure of Elyon’s Europe and North America server. The main reasons provided include “very low retention rate” and “a declining amount of active users.”
The Korean server, however, is still bracing for end-2022 to early 2023 updates including a new 10-player boss raid, a new high level PVE map, 10 vs 10 PVP mode, a brand new class roughly translated to “Pulse Shooter,” a new PVE league, and new Realm vs Realm dimension portal. If you ask me, I do think that the SEA server managed by Asiasoft will be meeting its end soon as well.
