It was only in mid-July, 2025 was Sword Art Online finally cleared. The remaining 5,938 players were logged out from the game and the incident hit the global news yet again.

However, this halting of the industry did not last long. Under the direction of the Rath company, the new game of «Spell Blade Online» was created using the old data from ALfheim Online. The Closed Beta was released to 3,000 players in November 2025 as a homage to the memory of the day Sword Art Online began.
