Agents of Mayhem: servers closed without notice by Volition and Deep Silver

Agents of Mayhem

Agents of Mayhem was definitively retired, as far as online activities are concerned, with the closure of the servers by Volition, which took place without any prior notice from the developers for the community.

In fact, the The announcement came from a reply from the official Saints Row account which simply reported that "the servers were shut down a short time ago", thus explaining why the servers were not available for any version of Agents of Mayhem in these days.

Although this is a game now considered "old" and in any case probably with a small population still active, evidently there were still some loyal players who now find themselves without the possibility of entering the online world. The choice to close the servers is physiological, once you have reached a certain degree of seniority or lack of players, but it is still strange that this took place without any official announcement for users.

On the other hand, the question also concerns those who want to dedicate themselves to completing the game, since, for example, to reach the platinum trophy in Agents of Mayhem it is still necessary to obtain online achievements and a warning in time he would have allowed the completasti to devote himself to it, for one thing. The game quickly fell short of expectations in terms of market performance, leading to many layoffs in Volition probably related to this.

No One Noticed That Agents of Mayhem’s Servers Went Offline

Remember Agents of Mayhem? It was a sort of spiritual reboot / sucessor to Saints Row, developed by Deep Silver and Volition entertainment. It was reviewed well enough, though it failed to accrue any kind of lasting playerbase. That’s probably why I had to start this paragraph by saying “remember Agents of Mayhem?” To most people, the game exists as a buried memory – something that happened that one time that was only-sorta remembered, never to be recalled again.

As confirmed by an official twitter source, the game’s servers went offline “a while ago”. There was no formal announcement. No warning given to players. Deep Silver and Volition Entertainment just quietly took things offline, only noting things publicly when called out on twitter.

The servers were turned off a while ago for AOM.

This doesn’t affect co-op but contracts are now unavailable.

Those with a sharp eye might have spotted something here. This isn’t a new tweet. It was made all the way back in october. The “a while ago” is even older than that. And the tweet was so obscure that a fresh ResetEra thread is the only reason we know about it.

One thing noted by the ResetEra post is that it’s now impossible to 100% complete the game. Some parts of the game, namely achievements, required those servers to get earned. Now, the player is completely cut off from them. And they were never warned.

Though to be fair, it’s not like the game had a huge playerbase anyway. In its final days, TheGamer notes that Agents of Mayhem’s steam stats showed just single-digit player counts. It’s no surprise that the tweet saw minimal engagement, it’s just not something people cared about.
