- NieR Re[in]carnation is shutting down its servers on April 29th
- The final chapter will launch on March 28th
- In-game events will run until the game shuts down
In case you missed it, Square Enix has announced that NieR Re[in]carnation will be shutting down, with the final chapter of the game launching on March 28th. Players will still be able to enjoy the mobile RPG until April 29th when the doors officially close at 22:00 PST.
NieR Re[in]carnation launched on July 28th, 2021, so it comes as a bit of a shock for a title in such a beloved franchise to end just a little under three years. There will, of course, still be a few more events to enjoy for the last time before the game goes offline, which includes a Countdown Resurrected Event Medal Exchange that lets you redeem characters, memoirs, companions and weapons from previous Record and Variation event quests.
“We would like to express our deepest gratitude to our players for your patronage over the 2.5 years,” says the game’s official statement. “Until the end of service, we will continue to add content and characters, as well as hold various events and campaigns, so we hope you will continue to enjoy NieR Re[in]carnation until the end.”
