Sony has signalled the end to online support for tactical shooters SOCOM and MAG.
On 28th January 2014, Sony will turn off the servers powering the online service for PlayStation 3 exclusives MAG, SOCOM: Confrontation and SOCOM: Special Forces.
MAG and SOCOM: Special Forces were developed by Zipper Interactive, which Sony closed down in March 2012.
"The closure is a result of a normal cycle of resource re-alignment within SCE WWS," Sony said in a statement issued at the time.
SOCOM: Special Forces released in 2011 to middling review scores. MAG released in 2010 and caught attention for its huge, 256-player online battles. SOCOM: Confrontation, developed by Slant Six Games, released a year earlier, but failed to win over critics.
