  • The lone developer behind the best PS2 emulator for Android has “indefinitely suspended” development.
  • In a post, the developer says he received “death threats” and other attacks.
  • The AetherSX2 emulator will still work, but no future development is planned.

For many years, the only choice emulation fans had for playing PS2 games on Android was DamonPS2, a for-profit, closed-source app with a very shady past. This is why the entry of AetherSX2 was so exciting. Finally, you could play PS2 games on Android without supporting DamonPS2.

Unfortunately, it looks like the developer behind this PS2 emulator for Android has thrown in the towel. In a short post at aethersx2.com, the lone developer behind the app says he has “indefinitely suspended” development of the emulator.
