Disney / Playdom’s Blackwood & Bell Mysteries is coming to a close on Facebook. Players logging into the hidden object game will receive a closure notification the next time they login, alerting them of the closure date of October 20.

Blackwood & Bell Mysteries launched in March 2012, and allowed players to jump into the shoes of detectives as they collected clues and solved cases in Victorian-style environments. The game peaked at over 2.5 million monthly active players, according to our app tracking service AppData.

The in-game notification states that while the decision to shut down games is “difficult,” this will allow Disney / Playdom’s development teams to “focus on building new, more engaging games.”

Premium currency must be used before the game is closed on October 20, and no refunds or transfers will be provided for unspent currency.

While Blackwood & Bell Mysteries is closing, the developer’s other hidden object game, Gardens of Time, will remain open. The third game in its hidden object trio, Disney Animal Kingdom Explorers, was also previously closed.
