Dear community,

We’re sorry to inform you that we will be sunsetting Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex First Assault Online in North and South America, Europe, and the Oceania region, with final closure scheduled for December 6.

This was a very tough decision to make. The game has been in development for a long time, supported by developer, publisher, and community effort. Ultimately, we decided that continued development wasn’t going to help the game become what we all hoped it could become.

We will be supporting the game for the next several months during the sunset period, allowing both the development and publishing teams and the community to say goodbyes and enjoy the game.

In the near term, we’ll be removing the in-game store and will stop selling Steam DLC immediately.
After several months, the game service will be closed for good on December 6, 2017 at 10am PST.

It’s been a humbling experience to serve such a dedicated and engaged player community. We sincerely thank you for all the feedback and support you’ve given us throughout the years.

-First Assault Team

    No way !!

    @Predictable - is it possible to revert your decision if you make proper survey what players expect from this game?
    Maybe its not all lost yet. Trust the community and follow their voice.
    Reverting game back to 1.0 may bring back many players and you may just rework changes and implement it later.

    when nexon kill FA that will cause high collateral damage to all nexon games. they got some more online games running with players who now know they risk loosing their whole time/money/community investment within 3 months. it is a stupid decision to let it end like this but well that´s modern games industry... money, money, money, fail

    Sad news to hear. Would it be possible to revert back to 1.0 for the remaining time? So we can enjoy the game in its former glory and no-life TDM Port again with our stupid builds?
    Had hoped to see a revert and more effort into making 1.0 more balanced.. but I guess the end is near. It was a lot of fun while it lasted, hate to see the game go.

    @Predictable - If you seriously close that game I wont play any nexon games anymore because I cant trust you since youre closing another game very shortly after starting.
    And I guess there are many players who agree with me. No point in playing games hosted by company like yours who give up so quickly.

    they do not care and there will not be any refunds. players should stop being a commercial toy and go back to the roots with passionate game studios that don´t sell their babies to foolish pub´s .

    *A loud "NOOOOOOOOOO!" can be heard from central Wisconsin*

    I am sad that this game, based off my favorite series of all time, is coming to a close. I'M the most devoted GITS fan you'll ever meet, and it was a dream come true to become a forum mod and work on this game in my own way.


    Well, if the game is going to end, then I say let us enjoy the cosmetics in the game. Give access to all the legendary skins.

    I'm going to miss this game. It was crazy fun. It renewed my love for the movies and the TV show all over again.

    Why mentioning North and South America, Europe, and the Oceania regions? Does it mean there are others that are going to stay up?

    Dang it. I enjoyed this while it lasted though I wasn't on much. Was in since the closed beta did the operative early access pack in 12/19/2015
    Hopefully someone can pick this up and turn it to a PVE experience someday.

    Predictable is simply delivering a message. He's doing his job and it's not okay to blame him for something that's completely out of his hands.
    This goes for EVERYONE here. Vent, be angry, share feelings, but do not make accusations and place the blame on mods and CMs, or GMs.

    All of those regions were mentioned for clarity. Being that it's published by NX North America, some might assume the ONLY the North American server was going to be retired.
    Thanks for asking, I'm sure some other might have the same concern ^^
