Sony shutting down servers for many games – including Killzone 2 and 3
Sony has announced that it’ll be shutting down its servers for several titles ranging across a variety of platforms.
Killzone 2 and 3 are probably the most popular games out of the crew. Killzone 2 dates back to 2009 while Killzone 3 released in 2011. These games were heavily advertised and considered to be some of the best FPS games during that time period. They were widely anticipated and successful due to the online gameplay
Another game which is affected is Wipeout. This includes Wipeout HD and Wipeout HD Fury, and Wipeout 2048 on the PS Vita. However, these games will be available on the Wipeout Omega Collection on PS4 with the online gameplay- you just need to make sure you have a PS4, and buy the collection.
The online mode for Knack’s Quest on iOS/Android will also be taken down. It was a free game that allowed you to play online and transfer your stuff over to Knack. The server going down means no more transferring your items over to Knack.
The last few games are the EyePet games, which include EyePet, EyePet Move Edition, and EyePet & Friends, which all have been debuted on the PS3.
So, to recap:
- Killzone 2
- Killzone 3
- Knack’s Quest
- Wipeout HD
- Wipeout HD Fury
- Wipeout 2048
- EyePet Move Edition
- EyePet & Friends
With all these servers going down, it’s bound to cause disappointment for many players. But then again, it’s common practice for games which are outdated or just aren’t profitable anymore. Sony isn’t necessarily breaking any promise or warranty by doing so.
