Dark Souls 2 was released for PS3 and Xbox 360 back in March 2014, so the servers would have been online for a decade, which isn’t too shabby nowadays. Plus, as the statement above says, the PS4, PC, and Xbox One versions will still continue to function.

The Dark Souls franchise has proven to be hugely successful for FromSoftwares since its inception in 2011, going from cult favourite to a multi-million selling series embraced by the mainstream.
