Defiance And Defiance 2050 Closing Slightly Over 2 Months From Now
It appears that gamigo is making moves in its portfolio of titles. Defiance and Defiance 2050, both acquired from the Trion Worlds asset purchase back in 2018, will be discontinued on April 29th. This means players have about 2 months to get their kicks in before what started as a sci-fi game/TV show crossover ceases to be.
In a post published on the game's site, the team said what you probably already expect, "This decision was not an easy one to make. We concluded that both games could no longer sustain themselves." It isn't exactly hard to see that Defiance and Defiance 2050 haven't had content additions in a while and probably didn't have the largest player bases sticking around.
If you're interested in moving from Defiance to another gamigo game, the post linked above does point out a few options for you and even passes out codes for a few titles to help you get started. Interestingly here though, while Trove, ArcheAge, ArcheAge Unchained, and even Desert Operations get a mention in this list, Rift failed to make the list so you may want to keep an eye out on that title for the next few days to see if any sad announcements come from the Telara camp.
If you still have Defiance bits (the cash shop currency) you can still use them, but as of today you can no longer purchase them and the team put together a list of in-game notables for players to enjoy for the final two months including:
- 95% discount on all in-game items sold for Bits in the Defiance Store.
- Every 1-2 weeks, we will hold a server event for Defiance and Defiance 2050.
- Server Boosts for Skill, Reputation, and Experience Points will be active.
The team also plans to offer some giveaways as the clock winds down.
