Sony Online Entertainment shuts down four online multiplayer titles

Everquest Online Adventures for PS2 among the games that are getting culled

Sony Online Entertainment (SOE) has announced the closure of four titles: EverQuest Online Adventures for PlayStation 2, Cosmic Rift, Infantry, and Star Chamber: The Harbinger Saga. Sunset procedures are scheduled for March 29, 2012, with SOE terminating billing on Everquest Online on March 1. All official websites and forums related to the titles will be shut down, and SOE has no plans to allow the games to be licensed out for emulation.

"Each of these games shares a special place in both ours and our players' hearts. This is not an easy decision, but there comes a time when it's best for our developers to move on to the next adventure, and that day has come," wrote SOE in a farewell letter to fans of EQOA.

SOE will be offering three free months of Everquest or Everquest II Gold to current Everquest Online Adventures subscribers. More details on the shut down can be found at the Closure Announcement FAQ.
