Anyone who follows the development of the role-playing game world must have heard of the game “Fall of Babylon” by Square Enix. Various issues posted last March, The Fall of Babylon, were labelled a failure. Publisher Square Enix has announced that it will shut down all server activity starting in February 2023. PlatinumGames finally opened up as a game developer and apologized for the fall of Babylon.
Quote from interview VGC With PlatinumGames CEO Atsushi Inaba. He expressed his deepest apologies for the failure of the fall of Babylon.He revealed that the main factor behind the game’s failure was the lack of balance between the two “The pure joy of the core game mechanics you have in a live service game” and”Perform field service yourself”. According to him, the imbalance between the two was the main reason for the failure of the fall of Babylon. Even so, PlatinumGames wants to develop games for live streaming services. Inaba said the failed fall of Babylon was a lesson in developing the next live service game for PlatinumGames.
In addition to this, Covid-19 is also the reason for the interruption of game development. This coupled with unsatisfactory reviews of the gameplay is another factor in the game’s failure. Ultimately, Square Enix has decided to shut down all Babylon Fall servers starting February 23, 2023.
Ultimately the fall of Babylon was real fall, Babylon’s Fall was only 11 months old from its initial release last March until the server shut down. The Steam and Playstation pages for this game are no longer accessible. However, those who still own the game can still play until the servers shut down or until February 23, 2023.
