Upon the scheduled maintenance on August 19th, 2020, the PlayStation Vita version of PSO2 will cease operation.
The Vita version has been supported for 7 long years, even following the system's official discontinuation last March. We've had to think long and hard about how long to continue this support.
One thing we've considered is how, up until now, any content that we designed for the game would inherently have to be playable on Vita hardware. We have decided that we would like to increase the quality and capabilities of future updates and content beyond what would be capable on the platform. Therefore, we came to the decision to drop our support for the Vita in the coming days.
We would kindly ask current Vita players to prepare to switch to a different platform during the lead-up to August 19th.
Until then, we would like to express our gratitude to everyone that has spent these long years playing PSO2 on Vita. Thank you.
