Additionally, Atlus said it has two World Tendency events planned for next month, which will run May 1-15 and May 16-31 and will be based on a fan vote.

In a statement, Atlus vice president of sales and marketing Tim Pivnicny thanked fans for supporting the game.

"Regrettably, the online servers cannot be sustained forever and now the end draws near. Thank you to the unparalleled passion and support of the Demon's Souls community throughout these last two and a half years," he said. "The online adventure may end soon, but the memory of it--just like that of every boss strategy, every level floor plan, and hidden secret--lives on in the gamers for whom the game was so special."
