Drawn to Death, the final game of David Jaffe‘s now-closed Bartlet Jones Supernatural Detective Agency studio, is not much longer for this world. On September 24, 2018, players logged on to find a new announcement message that let the remaining fans know that Drawn to Death will be shutting down within a few months. The termination date is currently March 25, 2019.
The announcement reads as following:
Notice: Multi-player and all online features for this product will be terminated and will no longer be available on 03/25/19. As you have to be online to play this title, this game will not be playable starting 03/25/19.
That’s all she wrote. While it has gone on sale for as low as a few dollars in the recent past, Drawn to Death is currently on the PlayStation Store for its normal price of $19.99. Be warned if you’re still curious about the game at this point, as buying it today gives you a six-month time limit.
Released in 2017, Drawn to Death is an arena-style shooter with a style based on high school-ish notebook scribbles. Unfortunately it was not received well by most critics upon release, generally sitting around the 5/10 mark, including right here at PlayStation Lifestyle.
The Bartlet Jones Supernatural Detective Agency closed its doors earlier this year in February 2018.
