In addition to the official announcement about Mobius Final Fantasy shutting down posted on the website, Square Enix also sent a notification to players about it on Wednesday.
Those who have invested real money in the game will be especially hurt by the news. Square Enix will continue to sell “Magicite” in the game until March 31. Any Magicite purchased before than can be used through the end of support on June 30. However, it’s hard to imagine anyone buying any more Magicite now that the game’s end has been announced.
