SOE is closing down four of its MMOs. Star Wars: Clone Wars Adventures and Free Realms will close on March 31st. Vanguard and Wizardry Online will bow out on July 31st.
There are reasons, Mostly being that people hardly play on them anymore. Not only that, But running servers nobody ever touches is wasting money on power and bandwidth.
Probably, still sucks though. This is for the PC versions too, right? My daughter has played Free Realms almost every day since it launched, even bought her a lifetime subscription on there.
Yeah same with my kid. She has been playing that game for a very long time. Free Realms has a tons of people that actually do play. I have seen it myself. I hope this is just for the PS3 version of the game cause the PC version seems to be doing well.
@Raven Yeah, looks like the PC version too, there's an announcement on the front page on Free Realms.. man, that sucks. http://www.freerealms.com/a...
Vanguard had such a rough start that people moved on very quickly. The last time I played it (roughly 3 years ago) it was a damn good game! ... just empty... :/
Wow Sony is on a role in shutting down servers as of late.
Yea. Shame on them for not keeping servers that are empty alive.
in his defense sony has been dropping the hammer on a lot of servers. recently all socoms and the mag servers. next comes all ps3 resistance games and gt5 in april. resistance 3 only being released in 2011. if its time, then its time. its sad to see. i put a lot of hours into resistance fall of man and number 2 as well. didnt play much multiplayer in part 3 though but considering it released a little over 2 years ago im sure theres still a good audience playing it
Interesting. Maybe that will free up some devs for other, better games.
Resistance 3 lagged worse than CoD multiplayer close that crap, but I'm sure it was my connection only....
