Bless Online has officially shut down after a year and a half since its May 2018 launch. The game officially shut its doors yesterday, putting an end to the struggling MMORPG.

The announcement was reaffirmed this past weekend on Steam by the dev team.

To our loyal Bless Online Community, Steam service for Bless Online will be ending on September 9th, 2019 at 00:00 PDT. While things may not have worked out as we had hoped, we have learned a lot from the experience of creating Bless Online and are excited for the future of not only Bless Unleashed but future titles. From everyone here on the Bless Online team, thank you again for your support over the past year and a half.

Bandai Namco, along with Neowiz, are now pouring their resources into Bless Unleashed, an Xbox One reimagining of their game. This is after Bless Online struggled mightily to maintain its user base. It'll be interesting to see how the Xbox One community takes to Bless Unleashed when it hits the console this November with an open beta.
