Princess Connect! Re:Dive Global Version to Shut Down on April 30

    The end of the road in Astraea.

    Crunchyroll Games announced the global version of mobile RPG Princess Connect! Re:Dive will shut down on April 30, 2023. The Japanese version of the game appears to be unaffected, but the shutdown marks the end of a two-year run for the English release. A reason was not given for the game’s shutdown, but various details were revealed about what’s to come in the next thirty days. 

    In-game purchases in Princess Connect! Re:Dive have been disabled effective immediately, and the in-game shop itself is now closed. Players may still use any remaining Jewels left until the game closes on April 30. These Jewels may be used to summon Rin (Ranger) and Mahiru (Ranger) with the latter being made available on April 17. Crunchyroll Games is thankful for players that have supported the global version these past two years. 

    The full end of service message may be read below via Crunchyroll Games:

    Princess Connect! Re:Dive Global Version to Shut Down

    On April 30, 2023 UTC, Princess Connect! Re:Dive will reach its end of service, and players will be unable to log into their accounts after that date. In preparation for this end of service, as of today, the in-game Shop has been closed, and all in-app purchases are no longer available for purchase. Players will still be able to use any accrued Jewels or similar resources until the closure of the game at the end of April, including the two new characters releasing between now and then, Rin (Ranger) and Mahiru (Ranger), the latter of which will be available on April 17 UTC.

    We know this is unfortunate news to hear, and relaying a decision like this to everyone does not come easy. However, one thing is absolutely clear: we are immensely grateful and thankful to all of the loyal fans and players that have enjoyed Princess Connect! Re:Dive. We only hope that everyone has enjoyed the past two-plus years together as much as we enjoyed bringing it to you. 

    From each “Heyas, Knights!” opener to each bullet point summary at the end of each article that some of y’all probably skipped to, from every joke about “Grot-two” double drops to us heralding the continuous return of the 3★ Guaranteed Premium Gacha, and all the bad puns and extra jokes in between… It’s been a pleasure getting to bring you these update articles and explore this wild world with everyone, and with a bit of luck, hopefully, some of them put a smile on your face.

    There are countless stories from the continent of Astraea that will be left untold and characters we’ll have yet to meet, but Princess Connect! Re:Dive will live on in our hearts. And who knows – maybe you’ve made a couple of friends throughout your time playing the game, from the clans you’ve joined or the communities you’ve participated in. Don’t let this announcement stop you from continuing those relationships! After all, Princess Connect! Re: Dive has always been a story about friendships, bonds, and connections that can overcome any challenges, strife, and realities. 

    All right – one last time, for the metaphorical road. From all of us at Crunchyroll Games:

    Thank you for playing Princess Connect! Re:Dive, Knights!

    Lastly, Princess Connect! Re:Dive is available now for Android and iOS.
