Monolith Soft, the studio behind the Xenoblade Chronicles series, has announced that their official website will be going down for server maintenance on September 8.
It’s unusual for the developer to announce that the website will be down for a period of time which has led to some speculation about the next game in the series.
Xenoblade Chronicles 3 has been expected to be revealed this year, and rumors have surrounded the game for quite some time now. However, these new rumors are being linked to the current rumors about an upcoming Nintendo Direct. There has been no confirmation from Nintendo yet that a new Nintendo Direct is coming this week or next week but the Monolith Soft announcement is fuelling it further.
With the Monolith Soft website going down on September 8, if a new Nintendo Direct is announced before then or for the same day, we should be in for some interesting news.
