Square Enix has announced that mobile RPG Dissidia Final Fantasy Opera Omnia is shutting down in February.

In a post on the game's official X (formerly known as Twitter) account, the publisher announces the end of the game's service with "deep regret".

Dissidia Final Fantasy Opera Omnia will continue to operate until February 29th, which, coincidentally, also happens to be the release date of the upcoming Final Fantasy VII Rebirth.

In a followup post, Square Enix also confirms the events that will run in the period between now and Dissidia Final Fantasy Opera Omnia's closure.

They include the Cactuar Cacophony event, the Dare to Defy: Astraeus event, and special daily and title draws, which will continue all the way until February 29th.

Other special limited-time events include the Dare to Defy: Nyx event, which begins on January 1st, and the Dusk to Dawn: Ogres Parade the Night event, which runs for a month between January 1st and February 1st.

It seems that if you're an Opera Omnia fan, you don't have to say goodbye to the game just yet, but your time with it is, unfortunately, limited.

Dissidia Final Fantasy Opera Omnia was billed as a classic turn-based RPG featuring a cast of Final Fantasy all-stars.

Dissidia Final Fantasy Opera Omnia began service all the way back in 2018.

Despite the Dissidia name, it's not a fighting game; rather, it's a turn-based RPG, although it does feature a range of characters from the Final Fantasy series, just like other Dissidia games.

Players collect characters from the franchise, then use them to do battle with various enemies in turn-based combat, using the series' signature Bravery system to maximize damage and devise strategies.

Since release, the game has received many updates adding new characters and features, including Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin's Jack Garland, Final Fantasy II's Minwu and Emperor, and Final Fantasy XII's Basch, among many others.

This isn't the only mobile JRPG announced to be closing its doors in recent months, either.

Back in October, Sega announced it would end service for Yoko Taro's retro waifu RPG 404 Game Re:Set, just eight months after the game launched.
