@HarmlessSyan The content updates since October haven't added anything truly new, they've all pretty much re-used existing content (that is, re-using existing enemies and areas).
Until December it wasn't too bad, there were a few signs of updates slowing down, but there were still somewhat regular content updates. Between the month of January and what was shown in the newest PSO2 Station, I think it's pretty clear that PSO2 is transitioning into a maintenance/end of life state, it'll be kept alive but won't be getting content.
- In January there was only the space Magatsu rerun, this is not normal for JP.
- While a few are new, most scratches lately have been revivals.
- Yesterday the valentine lobby was added but no urgent quest or NPCs with client orders, and the trailers for white day and easter also only showed the lobbies, nothing else, which implies that seasonal events won't be having any playable content on the JP version of PSO2 this year.
- Despite being a somewhat new feature on JP, the newest mission passes are already starting to last longer than the initial ones (4 weeks), the current mission pass is lasting a total of 9 weeks and based on the trailer in the PSO2 Station, the next one is gonna last 6 weeks.
- As I said in my previous post, it was mentioned that the next PSO2 Station at the end of March is going to be the last one, I think this one is the biggest sign that PSO2 is slowly transitioning into a maintenance only state.
- The graphics update, limited quest and revival of fire swirl are nice, but they feel more like a last hurrah at this point. I guess it all depends on what they'll show in the next PSO2 Station, but I'm really not expecting much.
@HarmlessSyan said in Will Sega stop making content for PSO2 when NG comes out?:
(common for JP events to last way past the actual holiday, I remember Easter event often starts AFTER Easter).
That's because easter in the east happens on different days than the west, for example, this year it's on April 4th in the west and May 2nd in the east.
