Online Support Ends In 2014 For GT5, Resistance Franchise, MAG
Games can't stay online forever.
Sony has announced the games that will be losing their online support in early 2014.
Notable titles on the list include Gran Turismo 5 (GT6 was recently released on December 6) and all three Resistance games. GT5 is all done on May 20, 2014, while the Resistance franchise bites the online bullet on March 28. Other games on the chopping block are MAG, SOCOM: Special Forces and SOCOM: Confrontation, all of which will be done on January 28. Calling All Cars, Motorstorm: Pacific Rift and both White Knight Chronicles games will finish up on that same date. JRPG fans won't be happy about the latter.
It's too bad that MAG never developed into the epic online MMOFPS it could've been. Developer Zipper Interactive laid a really solid framework for the future; it just didn't get popular enough.
