Ubi bought Shadowbane's Wolfpack in '04, and then closed the studio in '06 but veterans banded together and limped into Stray Bullets Entertainment. They can no longer support it.
"We come to you now with regret and sadness, but also happiness and pride.. Regret and sadness that it has finally come to this, and as of May 1, 2009 the Shadowbane servers will be powered down once and for all," the Shadowbane team.
"Yet happiness that it lasted so very long, and pride to be able to stand before such a passionate community to thank you for your undying support and unwavering loyalty to Shadowbane."
"Many passionate and creative individuals have poured their hearts and souls into developing and hosting Shadowbane. We want to thank each and every one of you for your tremendous work and valiant efforts throughout Shadowbane's lifetime."
"Remember, Play to Crush!" A sound motto that kids could learn a lot from.
