Asheron’s Call and Asheron’s Call 2 are shutting down. Since its launch in 1999, Asheron’s Call has floated from Microsoft to Turbine to Warner Brothers Interactive Entertainment. During that almost two decades long run, the sequel Asheron’s Call 2: Fallen Kings was published, shut down, then resurrected with the change in ownership. The original MMO was one of the first to offer monthly events and updates to players, and was considered competition to the king of online gaming at the time, EverQuest. Throughout the ups and downs of the market, Asheron’s Call has held on like a small candle on the windowsill.
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 all coming to an end. On January 31st, 2017, both games will cease to exist.
