Perfect World Makes The "Very Difficult Decision" To Shutter Jade Dynasty And Swordsman

While most of us are probably used to Perfect World Entertainment adding more games to their roster, today is not that day. Instead, the company announced the shutdown of all servers for two of its games: Swordsman and Jade Dynasty.

PWE posted individual announcements on each of the game's pages. However, they effectively read the same. The games' servers will come down on June 5, 2018 and they have already removed the ability to guy each game's premium currency. In addition, those who purchased the premium currency between February 1 and May 1 can expect the value of their purchase to be converted into Arc credit and applied to their account to be used in other PWE games.

The posts also note that shuttering the games was a difficult thing to do, but that they "no longer feel there is room for [them] to grow". So, the dev team is moving on to "bigger and better things".

Well...Jade Dynasty is too outdated even for oldfags now [we're not mentioning UO players which pretend there're no other MMOs in whole Universe except Ultima]. Swordsman has never been too popular, hyped about - yeah, popular - nope :D

Wuxia fans choose AoW or JX3 Online over it...or at least Moonlight Blade.

I used to like Swordsman but the hordes of bots just have killed the game for me.

Swordsman has cool story, but I didn't get far past level 24 or something. There also seem to be private servers, but I don't know how well coded they are if I want to experience the story, maybe I should fire the game up and finish the story before it closes down...
