Demon’s Souls Online Server Functionality Extended

Good news for fans of Demon’s Souls: the game’s popular online functionality will continue.

Atlus has announced today that online server support for PS3 exclusive RPG Demon’s Souls will continue. The announcement in its entirety can be seen below.

Atlus VP of Sales and Marketing Tim Pivnicny said:

While it originally seemed as though it would be unfeasible for us to continue to sustain the servers, a number of developments have made it possible for us to continue to invest in and support our fans as they have continued to invest in and support us and Demon’s Souls. For all the gamers who have yet to discover the game’s amazing online experience, we’re happy to say you can still log on and find out why Demon’s Souls is still regarded by many as one of the finest games of all time.

The extension announcement doesn’t contain any timeframe that suggests when server operation may be shut down in the future. The servers were originally scheduled to be shut down in May.

If there are any updates, PSLS will keep you posted.
