Months after its release, Nintendo has announced that online multiplayer service for Valhalla Studios’ Devil’s Third will be discontinued in December 2016.
Players worldwide will no longer be able to team up online starting at 9 p.m. PT/ 12 a.m. ET on Wednesday, December 28. However, online features for the game’s single-player mode will be unaffected.
“We are deeply thankful for all the players who have enjoyed Devil’s Third online multiplayer service, and thank you for your understanding regarding this decision,” reads a post on Nintendo’s support website.
In addition, the digital version of Devil’s Third on the Wii U eShop received a permanent price drop of $29.99 on Thursday, June 23 — down 50 percent from its original price of $59.99. And on Monday, June 27, Golden Eggs (microtransactions) will no longer be available for purchase.
Devil’s Third debuted across Japan and Europe in August 2015. It launched a few months later in North America on December 11, 2015. The game has been largely met with poor reviews, fan reception, and sales.
