Bandai Namco has announced that the Dark Souls servers on PC will remain closed at least until the launch of Elden Ring.
As we reported a few days ago, the community discovered a serious security flaw in From Software’s Saga games that allowed attackers to remotely execute code, steal information, or even take control of the computers concerned.
The reaction of the Japanese company was to close the online PvP mode of the games of the Dark Souls saga while the problem was studied and a solution was sought.
Now, by a communication published in Twitterhe explained that “we are aware of the technical difficulties that players of Dark Souls games on PC have encountered. Thanks to the community we discovered the cause and we are working on a solution”.
“Additionally, we have expanded the investigation into Elden Ring and taken the necessary security measures to ensure this title is on all platforms it is published on.”
As a result, “Dark Souls saga online services on PC will only be restored after the launch of Elden Ring. We will continue to do everything we can to deploy the service as soon as possible”.
There is no concrete date for this, although Elden Ring will release for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC the following day, February 25. It is to be expected, according to Bandai Namco, that Dark Souls Online will return to PC from this date.
