Sony Online Entertainment recently revealed that they will be shutting down a number of their MMO’s in the next couple of months. They’ve already announced the shut down of 4 games.
The spree begins with the shut down of Star Wars: Clone Wars Adventures and Free Realms on March 31st and continues with the shut down of Vanguard and Wizardry Online on July 31st.
Michele Cagle, the director of global communications offered the following explanation for the shutdowns:
At Sony Online Entertainment, we are always evaluating our portfolio to ensure we’re providing players with the best gameplay experiences. at times, as part of this commitment, we have to make the difficult decision to sunset a game so we can refocus our resources on other areas in the best interest of our company and player community.
SOE will provide details on each game’s ending at a later date.
