Dark Souls Servers Will Remain Offline Until Elden Ring Launches Due To Security Issues

Bandai Nam­co and From Soft­ware have respond­ed to the tech­ni­cal issues sur­round­ing the Dark Souls series on PC, say­ing the servers for Dark Souls, Dark Souls II, and Dark Souls III will con­tin­ue to stay offline as the com­pa­nies inves­ti­gate the issue. The servers will remain as such until Elden Ring is released on Feb­ru­ary 25th, as both From Soft­ware and Bandai Nam­co explained in a state­ment on Twitter.

In case you did­n’t know, it’s been report­ed that the Dark Souls games con­tain secu­ri­ty vul­ner­a­bil­i­ties that make them, as well as the com­put­ers they are played on, sus­cep­ti­ble to breach­es. Issues with sim­i­lar under­ly­ing fac­tors were exposed in Elden Ring dur­ing the net­work test, so this could affect Elden Ring upon its launch. From Soft­ware was report­ed well-informed of the pos­si­ble risk, but they chose to not to take action.

In its state­ment, Bandai Nam­co and From Soft­ware said the com­pa­nies have “extend­ed the inves­ti­ga­tion” into Elden Ring. They’ve also “made sure the nec­es­sary secu­ri­ty mea­sures are in place for this title on all tar­get platforms.”

The Dark Souls servers have been offline since the end of Jan­u­ary due to this problem.
