          No, unfortunately R2 will not be able to host any Shadowbound servers after the 19th.

            Was trying, unsuccessfully to log into Shadowbound all evening. Dropped into this forum to see whether there was a down for maintenance announcement and saw... this
            This is really sad. I put my share of years into this game, albeit quietly. I wish I had seen this announcement sooner. Is it dead as of the time of this post?
            I'm guessing this is because a contract with the game developer expired?

              They are trying to get you to play their garbage games Dragon Awaken or Game of T. Guess since they stopped supporting this game, the best they ever made, they are making no money on it so cheaper to shut it down. Most people I have talked to will not be playing R2 games unless they put Shadowbound 2 out. I for one will play no more of their games.

                      If there's another game you would rather play besides Dragon Awaken or Game of Thrones, you can mention that in your ticket and they will see what they can do for you.

                      As for the topic of a Shadowbound 2, that's not up to R2. R2 publishes browser games for developers, but R2 is not a browser game developer.

                      I wish you all the best in your future endeavors, whether that be trying out another game on this platform, or moving with your friend groups to another place.

                        So to reiterate my question: Has Shadowbound ended because a contract with the developer expired?

                          That's a hard one for me to answer because I'm not involved in the discussion regarding closures and have no access to the team that decides such things, but, I have been around long enough to make an educated speculation.

                          In my 10 years here, I have seen 3 games close due to contract issues, and they closed with no warning. Contract issues are rare. It's more likely that the cost to run the game exceeded the revenue for a substantial period of time.

                            Makes sense. Can only speak for my own server; but it's been very quiet there for a long time. Hard to imagine anyone was still spending money there.

                            It's a wonder the game held on for as long as it did. Still sad to see it go though
