Publisher Gameforge announced that MMORPG TERA is shutting down its PC servers on June 30th, 2022. According to the publisher, developer Bluehole is ceasing all development of the game. Without the ability to support new content for TERA, Gameforge must respect Bluehole’s decision as the last remaining publisher. Here’s what the publisher had to say:
Hello TERA players,
Unfortunately, we come bearing bad news: TERA’s developers, Bluehole, have decided to cease work on TERA. After much consideration, the team in South Korea have come to the conclusion that they are no longer able to offer you the exciting and satisfying content you deserve. As the last remaining publisher of TERA, it is with a heavy heart that we must respect Bluehole’s decision, and will also have to shut down the game. The TERA servers will be switched off at 10 AM CEST (4 AM EDT) on 30th June 2022. Until then, we’ll be running some permanent events, in the hope that you’ll at least be able to enjoy these final months in Arborea.
After nearly 10 long years, the TERA legend must sadly come to an end. Together we’ve braved so many of Arborea’s perils, fought valiantly against the argons, made many new friends and gone on countless adventures. We would like to thank you for your loyalty, for accompanying us on this long journey, and for being such an amazing community!

Our days in Arborea may be numbered, but the next adventure is just over the horizon. We hope to see you again soon in one of our other games.
The TERA Team
New account registrations and in-game purchases will be disabled starting May 31st. Once the game shuts down, all TERA related channels run by Gameforge across social media will be closed shortly after. The console versions are published by Krafton but will likely also shut down in the near future as Bluehole ceases development of the game. Although one journey ends, many more await players. Many RPGs are coming soon like Xenoblade Chronicles 3 while MMORPGs such as Final Fantasy XIV continue strong.
