Mirage: Arcane Warfare to be removed from sale
Developers say General Data Protection Regulation is to blame
Developer Torn Banner Studios has announced that their action game Mirage: Arcane Warfare will be soon removed from sale on Steam.
In a statement on the official forums, the developer says:"We have made this change in part due to the new European Union privacy law, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), that comes into effect May 25, 2018. We unfortunately have run out of options for keeping Mirage alive. Official servers will remain running until May 31. Players will continue to be able to host their own public or private servers after this point."
It is unclear exactly how the new European law, which provides new guidelines on user privacy online, affects the game and its services. The developer's other games, Chivalry: Medieval Warfare and Chivalry: Deadliest Warrior, will not be affected.
In Mirage: Arcane Warfare, the calm of a strange fantasy world is shattered by ruthless civil war. Warriors armed with steel and magic bring violence and death as they do battle across a fantastical Arabian and Persian-inspired setting of desert sands, market bazaars and grand palaces.
The game launched on PC almost exactly a year ago, in May 2017, but suffered from low player numbers to fill its servers.
