Mirage: Arcane Warfare, an online game released by Torn Banner Studios last year, has been taken down from sale as they prepare to shut down the servers forever.
Torn Banner posted that it had “unfortunately run out of options for keeping Mirage: Arcane Warfare alive,” saying that May 31 is the last day the online will remain running.
The decision to shut down Mirage: Arcane Warfare comes on the back of the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) law that comes into effect in the UK this week. It will be removed from Steam and all other marketplaces as well. The ability to change online games to bring them into line with the new regulations is something that a developer has the option to do, but they may not have the funds to be able to accommodate this type of law change. When they don’t have the means to change their games, they make the decision to close shop.
Mirage: Arcane Warfare is just one more notch in the list of games that will be shutting down as the GDPR started up on May 25, 2018.
