Sony Online Entertainment closing MMOs, teasing new ones

Sony Online Entertainment has spouted a fountain of news. First and foremost, it's closing a quartet of old MMOs: Vanguard: Saga of Heroes, Wizardry Online, Free Realms and Clone Wars Adventures.

Not enough people play to justify the upkeep, broadly speaking. Apparently Vanguard had been running at a loss for "a long time" but SOE didn't have the heart to tell players. That's what company president John Smedley told people on Reddit (via VG247). (PS3, PS4, Sony Online Entertainment)

I tried to enjoy Free Realms, but it was so annoying for two reasons

1 I had a gig+ update everytime I started it
2 Everytime you moved more than 5 feet you had to pay for something to go any further.

I think it has to be out for them to close it, but even if it was out, I have a feeling that it would be closing.

Funny, I just recently deleted Free Realms from my PS3 to make room for DmC or something. I only played it like once to try it out, about 3 years ago or so.
