Bless-Online-Global-Steam-English-Version-Shutting-Down-In-All-Regions-Leaving-Bless-Unleashed-To-Carry-The-IP

Following the recent closure notice of the Japanese version of Bless Online, developer and publisher Neowiz has officially announced that the global Steam version of the game will also be shutting down on September 8th, 2019. The closure will take place exactly one month after Bless Japan shuts down.

As we reported last week, Bless Online’s Global version on Steam has consistently performed poorly with a current average of 209 players in the last 30 days and similar numbers for the past five months.

When the global version shuts down, Bless on PC will no longer be playable in any region. The fate of the Bless IP will rely on Bandai’s Unreal Engine 4 iteration of Bless on Xbox One titled ‘Bless Unleashed‘. Bless Unleashed ran a four day closed beta testing in April 2019. No word has been given out in regards to open beta testing.
