ArchAge Notifies Playerbase of Termination of Service

ArchAge has notified its player base of a termination of service, I know this because I am or was one of those players, and I just received that notice in my inbox minutes ago. It basically states that the declining number of active players means the game’s content is no longer accessible in the way it used to be. The experience of it is different from what was originally intended are the reasons for the shutdown and more. The link here is the notification from ArchAge themselves or you can just read below the quoted article.

Dear Inheritors,

As a publisher of games, it is our mission to provide our players with great and enjoyable gaming experiences, so it is with heavy hearts that we announce the official closure of our ArcheAge servers, effective June 27, 2024. 

After discussing the performance of ArcheAge with XL Games at length, we have concluded that we’re no longer able to provide the MMORPG we envisioned. The declining number of active players means the game’s content is no longer accessible in the way it used to be, and the experience of it is different from what was originally intended. In light of this, we’ve made the difficult decision to terminate the live service of ArcheAge in Europe and North America.

We understand this news is disappointing, for it’s a feeling we share. ArcheAge has been a big part of our lives, and we know many of you have a history with the game many times longer than ours. As we approach the end of this journey, we invite you to join us as we ride into the sunset:


  • Game Access: ArcheAge servers will remain live until 08:00 UTC on June 27, 2024.
  • Customer Support: Our support team will be available until September 27 to assist with any inquiries or concerns.

We want to extend our deepest gratitude to every member of Nuia, Haranya, and the Pirates who called ArcheAge home. Your spirit and stories will forever be a part of the legacy we created together. Though our paths may diverge, the memories we made will always remain.

For ongoing updates, please keep an eye on our official channels. We are committed to providing a transparent and supportive service until the very last moment.

Thank you for everything,

ArcheAge Team

That is the main notification of termination they go on to answer some first and foremost FAQ’s that players would ask like Can I get a refund or How long will credits be available for? and other questions like that. Again you can find all that out here on the announcements page from ArchAge.

ArcheAge is an MMORPG developed by Korean developer Jake Song and his development company, XL Games. The game was released in Korea on January 15, 2013, and in Europe and North America on September 16, 2014.  It is a thrilling fantasy sandbox MMORPG set in a world where players forge their own path, telling a story unique to them.

I hope my article has given you a bit of insight and you can pass on the information to someone you know that plays it or did and might want to play it again before it is laid to rest.

Keep on gaming and remember to always Play Your Game Your Way!
