Mobile title Dissidia Final Fantasy Opera Omnia is shutting down next year
Square Enix has announced that the services for Dissidia Final Fantasy Opera Omnia, a mobile RPG game, will be discontinued in February, rendering the title unplayable.
The announcement was made via the game's official X account, confirming that the game will no longer be playable in any form as of February 29, 2024, after launching worldwide in 2018 and surpassing 10 million downloads by June 2022.
The developer has also released its final content schedule, which includes several special events leading up to the shutdown. Square has also disabled in-game sales of its premium currency, "Gems," in tandem with the announcement.
DFFOO was initially met with mixed reactions, with many criticizing the lack of content while praising the gameplay. Over the last six years, new quests and characters from other Final Fantasy games have been added, bringing the total number of characters in the game to 179. Although all content is free, players could increase their power by purchasing paid gems.
Square's track record with mobile titles has been inconsistent, with the Final Fantasy VII battle royale "The First Soldier" being shut down in January after only a little more than a year on the market, and Just Cause Mobile being canceled in July. Ever Crisis, the company's most recent release, has seen success, with the game serving as a retelling of the events of the FF7 saga and being available on mobile and Steam.
