Seems like the game didn’t do well and CyberConnect2 or maybe Namco Bandai just decided not to waste any more time on it. There was a sharp decline in active players around May or June, probably due to the nature of how the events in the game are being roll out and people just lose interest in it. There are probably not much way to improve the already very linear battle system too…
I’ve been playing the game since launch, and did spend money on the game and much more on their recent Halloween gacha. Not so much about the money, but really sad to see all these amazing characters, and their artworks going down to waste.
I’ll still be hanging around the game for awhile more before moving on.
The game will end on 20th December 2016.
