Saying goodbye to any game is never easy, and it’s always hardest when you love the game as much as we all love Duelyst. We’re incredibly proud of the effort our developers have put in on Duelyst over the years, and even more proud of the amazing community of friends and gamers that have enjoyed Duelyst.
We want to thank all of you for being a part of the Duelyst family, and for making our time working on Duelyst the amazing adventure it has been.
We’ve been truly blessed to be part of such an amazing community.
Bandai Namco Entertainment accounts will continue to be active, players who have them, can still use them to future Bandai Namco games.
For those who aren’t familiar with Duelyst, it’s a strategy game, players use cards on a grid to battle other player. Each card will summon creatures on the battlefield. Duelyst is online-only, this means, the game will not be playable after the servers shuts down.
The game was well received for combining the tactical combat and card-based mechanics. But unfortunately, player count has been dropping since its release leading to a server shutdown.
