Square Enix has just announced that the free-to-play online Legacy of Kain spin-off, Nosgoth, has been cancelled. This does not surprise us of course as a F2P game was not what Legacy of Kain fans were yearning for these past couple of years.
As Square Enix announced:
“It is with a heavy heart and an immense sense of sadness that we must announce the end of Nosgoth’s development. Servers will continue to run until 31st May 2016, during which time you will be able to play the game as normal. After that date, Nosgoth will be taken offline for the last time.”
According to the FAQ provided by Square Enix, new and existing players will be able to continue to play Nosgoth until May 31st, however players will no longer be able to make real world purchases in the game. In addition, all purchases made since March 1st will be automatically refunded.
As for the future of Legacy of Kain, Square Enix had this to say:
“Any future Legacy of Kain project will be considered independently of Nosgoth and on the merits of the proposals alone.”
