Dark Souls 2 PC servers have been fixed and are now live. Sadly, From Software did not manage to fix Dark Souls PC servers, which will stay offline for good.
Following the patch for Dark Souls 3 PC servers a while ago , From Software have announced that Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin servers on PC have also been fixed and are now live for all players. The fix for the base version of Dark Souls 2 is coming at a later date.
And while this is great to hear, there's some bad news for the fans of the original Dark Souls game. From Software have sad that due to the technical limitations of the original, they were unable to fix the issue and will no longer support online services for the PC version. Bummer.
"We have determined that we will not be able to support online services for the PC version of Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition that was released in 2012, due to an ageing system. We apologize for the long wait and ask for your understanding in this matter."
From Software thanked everyone who played Dark Souls since its launch and made it clear that the work on the restoration of online services for the PC version of Dark Souls Remastered is still underway, though, the release date is still unknown.
The online services for all three Dark Souls games were officially shut down in January 2022 when an exploit was discovered allowing the potential attacker to take control of the player's machine.
This problem only affected the PC version of all three games while the console versions work as intended to this day. Elden Ring PC version did not suffer from this exploit when it launched.
