LucasArts is to close 12 of the 25 Star Wars Galaxies servers.
It's all because of the "overwhelming success of the recent Free Character Transfer Service", according to an official post in the SWG forum.
The servers will close at 5pm PST on 15th October. You have until then to transfer characters for free. Character creation on the servers has already been shut down.
"We hope that you will continue to play on one of the 13 thriving Star Wars Galaxies servers and look forward to sharing many more new and exciting Star Wars themed adventures with you in the coming months as we introduce the Chronicle Master System, Death Troopers, and the upcoming Galactic Civil War enhancements," LucasArts stated brightly.
