Sierra closing 21 game servers

Mostly old, but fondly remembered.

Sierra/Vivendi plans to close 21 game servers on 1st November.

Fortunately, these all belong to old titles not yet old enough to be considered retro-cool like stupid plastic sunglasses.

The Sierra site gave no reason for the closures; it could be something to do with the Activision Blizzard merger, or just be because these games are knocking on a bit now.

There's some fond memories there, though.

  • Arcanum
  • Caesar IV
