Bandai Namco has announced that their action RPG title Tales of Asteria is ending service after 9 years and will shut down on May 18, 2023. However, the reason behind the shutdown hasn’t been known yet, and the makers will be running a series of campaigns before the game sees a confirmed end.

The game caught popularity soon after thanks to the inclusion of over 200 characters from the Tales series of games, as well as giving an entirely new story from the Namco Tales Studio. The game also includes cooperative battles in which players can team up with guildmates to take on more powerful enemies.
However, on 16th March 2023, the makers made an announcement regarding the shutdown, which albeit unexpected for the fans without citing a reason for the same.
