The end has come for military shooters SOCOM and MAG. On January 28, 2014, Sony will terminate online support for MAG, SOCOM: Confrontation and SOCOM: Special Forces. Zipper Interactive, the developer behind all these Playstation 3 games, was also closed down in March 2012.
Sony states the reason for the closure is “[The closure is] a result of a normal cycle of resource re-alignment within SCE WWS”.
Are you still playing these games online? I know I play my SOCOM every now and then, although I admit I won’t be devastated to see it go.
