The Asheron's Call forum and Facebook page has been updated with the sad announcement that support for Asheron's Call and Asheron's Call 2 is ending effective January 31, 2017. Calling the games a "labor of love", the notice says that the decision was not an easy one to make.

It is with a heavy heart that we must announce the end of our support for Asheron's Call and Asheron’s Call 2, and will close both services on January 31st, 2017.

This decision did not come easy, and we know this is disappointing for many of you. This game is a labor of love, and it's not easy for us to bring it to an end.

We have had a phenomenally long run; one of the longest in the world of MMORPGs, and that in and of itself is a spectacular feat. We are proud of our legacy, and the entire Asheron's Call team has been honored to adventure with you for nearly twenty years. We thank you very much for being a part of it.

It’s been an amazing run. You’ve done Asheron Realaidain proud.

Between now and January 31st, 2017, the game will remain available to play, completely free, for any player currently with an account. New account creation will be disabled.

If you have any questions, please visit support.wbgames.com

The game servers will continue to run through January 31st and players can take part in the game for free until that time. No new accounts can be created, however.

Asheron's Call was originally released in November 1999 and recently celebrated its seventeenth anniversary.

Participate in the discussion on the Asheron's Call Facebook page.
