Demon's Souls servers extended again

Its servers were scheduled to shut down at the end of this month, but Demon's Souls has gotten a reprieve. Publisher Atlus has announced that the servers for the PS3 action game will continue to operate "indefinitely."

"We're incredibly excited to be able to announce that the Demon's Souls online experience will persist for a while longer," Tim Pivnicny, marketing and sales VP at Atlus, said in a release. "While it originally seemed as though it would be unfeasible for us to continue to sustain the servers, a number of developments have made it possible for us to continue to invest in and support our fans as they have continued to invest in and support us and Demon's Souls."

The company did not rule out future extensions if the interest remains high in the game. The servers were originally supposed to shut down in October 2011.
