Super Bomberman R Online Concluding Service December 2022; New Bomberman Projects Teased

Developer and publisher Konami has announced that their free-to-play 64-player online battle royale, Super Bomberman R Online, will be concluding its service on all major platforms on December 1, 2022.

The reasoning given for this cancellation is quoted below:

Thank you for playing SUPER BOMBERMAN R ONLINE.

This service has continued to operate with the support of many users since its launch in May 2021, but due to various circumstances, we have decided to terminate the service on all platforms on December 1, 2022 at 01:00:00 (UTC).

The sale of Bomber Coins and Premium Packs will end at 01:00:00 UTC on June 1, 2022.
We ask that all unused Bomber Coins be used before the end of the service.
We hope that you will enjoy the game until the end of the service.

The “Bomberman” series is moving forward with new projects.
We hope to be able to inform you of this project soon.
Thank you for your continued support of the “Bomberman” series.

Hopefully, these new Bomberman-related projects are significant and exciting. Either way, it’s always saddening to say farewell to a title, regardless of its popularity.

Super Bomberman R Online is currently PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, Google Stadia, and PC with cross-play. Its console versions were initially announced in March 2021.
