Square Enix Montreal, which recently changed its name to Onoma, has announced which will shut down the service for four of its mobile titles. The quartet of games will officially end service on January 4, 2023, ahead of the studio’s announced closure.

Hitman Sniper: The Shadows; Deus EX IR; arena battle champions; Y Space Invaders: Hidden Heroes it will be removed from the iOS app store and the Android store on December 1st. Additionally, all in-game purchases have been suspended. On January 4th, all four titles will cease to be playable. No refunds will be issued for the initial game purchase or DLC downloads.

Square Enix Montreal, founded in 2011, focused primarily on creating free-to-play and mobile titles, finding a small but dedicated audience with its WE GO strategy series, which used famous IPs such as Hitman, Tomb RaiderY Deus Ex. The studio was acquired earlier this year as part of a transaction in which holding company Embracer Group acquired much of Square Enix’s western subsidiaries, including Crystal Dynamics and Eidos Montreal studios, along with their respective IPs.

Soon after, it was announced that Square Enix Montreal would be changing its name to Onoma, which seemed to signal new life for the company. However, in a shocking turn of events, the studio’s closure was announced just weeks later.
