22 Online Games Shut Down in 2018

While this is the year that Fortnite made it big, it wasn’t a year without some very sad departures. We saw studios close and beloved games disappear. We’re taking a look at the online games shut down in 2018 with a wide view that includes MMORPG, MOBA, and Battle Royale alike. These are the games we sadly lost in 2018.

 

Shutdown

 

RuneScape Classic

RuneScape Classic, not to be confused with RuneScape or Old School RuneScape, sunsetted earlier this year. Jagex touted the evolving nature of their tools and those self-same tools being incompatible with RuneScape Classic, leading to an increased chance of abuse and data breaches. The game itself may have broken without any warning as things continued developing away from the original codebase. Also in this year, Jagex shut down Chronicles: RuneScape Legends, Ace of Spades and their FunOrb game portal.

 

Just Survive

Just Survive

Daybreak Games has had an odd year, what with being implicated in the ongoing drama that is the presidency of Donald Trump. Columbus Nova and Russian oligarchs aside, Just Survive was originally H1Z1. Like any good zombie virus, it mutated into two variants with a battle royale spawning off of the sandbox survival game. Now Just Survive is gone and the battle royale seems to have been the survivor. Per the official statement “While this chapter for Just Survive has come to an end, we are discussing the possibility of allowing our partner and developer of Z1 Battle Royale, NantG Mobile, to bring Just Survive back online and take over the development of the game sometime in the future. Should we have further information to share regarding that matter, we’ll be sure to inform you accordingly.”

 

WildStar

Carbine Studios, the developer of WildStar, was shut down by NCSoft earlier this year and with it the game itself. According to reporting in Kotaku, Carbine had been pitching projects to its parent company but failed to gain any traction with them. This along with the general decline of WildStar led to the business decision to close the studio and game.

 

Master x Master

Master X Master mxm

After spending much of 2017 trying to appeal to former City of Heroes players by bringing out beloved iconic characters from the game, MXM ultimately shut down at the end of January. From the start though it seemed like a questionable proposition. It was late to the MOBA scene and trying to take an idea that had already been used by Blizzard of using iconic characters from their various games. Unfortunately for NCSoft, most of the games they focused on are practically unknown in the West and the games that are well known are controversial or downright unpopular. The exception to that is Guild Wars 2, which MXM hardly touched at all. Ultimately, NCSoft admitted that they failed to connect with players.

 

Paragon

paragon v.40

Epic Games used to be known as the creators of the Unreal Engine. These days they are probably known to everyone above a certain age as “the guys who make Fortnite.” Before the meteoric rise of Fortnite, however, there was Paragon. Paragon failed to take off in the already crowded MOBA market and soon was overshadowed by its battle royale cousin. In possibly the showiest goodbye possible short of giving out the server code, Epic Games gave full refunds to all players and then made $12 million worth of assets and art available for free in the Unreal Engine marketplace.

 

LawBreakers & Radical Heights

LawBreakers made news in that its shut down came not as the company tried different things but as the company ceases to be. Cliff Bleszinski’s Boss Key didn’t achieve the success they had hoped with LawBreakers and looked for options to stave off what was looming ahead of the company. They turned to the battle royale market and brought Radical Heights to the table. They may have had more success if they had broken out as a go-to game but in a genre that was dominated by PUBG and Fortnite, the 80s themed Radical Heights failed to achieve any heights at all. With its last failed attempt, Boss Key is no more.

 

Devilian

This one will have shades of Paragon around it. Trion Worlds, the publisher in the west, had to shutter Devilian as the developer Bluehole Ginno decided to discontinue work on the title. Devilian had its last run in March. How much of that came as a result of Bluehole Ginno becoming the PUBG Corporation and going all in on 2017s rising star is anyone’s guess. As it was the Diablo-like had a reasonable run but ultimately must have failed to grab enough of an audience for a maintenance mode conversion.

 

Various Perfect World Games

Gigantic beta 2.0 - MMOGames.com - Your source for MMOs & MMORPGs

Jagex isn’t the only publisher that had multiple closures this year. Perfect World Entertainment bid adieu to three entries this year, some more venerable than the others. Jade Dynasty, clocking in at a respectable 9 years, and Swordsman Online, itself four years old, was announced for sunset. Unfortunately, they were soon joined by Gigantic, the MOBA developed by Motiga. Poor Gigantic had the looks but sadly not the hooks to keep players in and playing. As the official statement put it, “Despite our best efforts, we were unable to find an impactful solution that would help Gigantic breakthrough in a crowded market.”

 

Breakaway

Amazon Studios came out swinging when it was announced. A 4v4 mythological sports brawler Breakaway, a survival MMO New World and the development engine Lumberyard. Lumberyard is still going, New World is in alpha but Breakaway… isn’t.

“In spite of our efforts, we didn’t achieve the breakthrough that made the game what we all hoped it could be. After a lot of soul-searching, the team decided to focus on new ideas. As a result, Breakaway is no longer in active development.”

 

Club Penguin Island

Club Penguin Island

The children’s MMO Club Penguin closed in 2017 only to be replaced by Club Penguin Island. Sadly for the dozens of employees at the game’s Kelowna, British Columbia studio, it wasn’t to last with Disney deciding to cut costs and with the title.

 

Linkrealms

Linkrealms Screenshot Beta Lava

Earlier this year Linkrealms players received an email saying the game would shut down. Linkrealms was a game in the style of Ultima Online and despite being f2p on Steam, came to a close in February.

 

Dead and Back Again

Sometimes there is a light at the end of the tunnel for games going dark.

 

Perpetuum Online

perpetuum

The Robotic forces of Perpetuum Online proved at the start of the year that there is no eternal thing, no perpetual motion and sadly announced a shutdown after several years of service. The death came as a consequence of the financial situation, servers being expensive to run if there aren’t enough people spending money on keeping them going.

Then in a wonderful turn around for this article, Perpetuum came back in the Open Perpetuum Project.  As they happily announced on the Steam Community forums: “The Open Perpetuum Project, a community run server and development initiative, has stepped up to host and develop features for their server for all players to enjoy.”

 

Maintenance Mode

Some games aren’t quite gone yet, but the developers are no longer working on them.

 

The Crew

The Crew

Robbing Peter to pay Paul is an old story. Moving development teams around as necessary is as old as the first computer. Earlier this year Ubisoft moved things around leading to the announcement that there would be no further development on The Crew in favor of The Crew 2 and the move of the first one into maintenance mode.

 

Hand of the Gods

Hand of the Gods: SMITE Tactics

Hand of the Gods: SMITE Tactics, a turn-based strategy game from Hi-Rez Studios also entered maintenance mode this year. As noted on Twitter by Hi-Rez president Stewart Chisam, “We have been working on and off on a nice bug fix patch to come out sometime soon. But no major content updates on the schedule. Servers will stay up as long as we have enough people wanting to play.”

If there are any of those left, they certainly aren’t haunting the subreddit which is remarkably quiet.

 

Islands of Nyne: Battle Royale

Islands of Nyne: Battle Royale

Created by Define Human Studios, Islands of Nyne: Battle Royale certainly had the look of a very pretty Battle Royale game. Unfortunately this month the axe came down somewhat on the Islands. Unable to financially support development costs, the decision was made by Define Human Studios to convert the game to free to play with the promise that servers will continue to stay up for the foreseeable future. It’s still free to play on Steam if you want to have a look at how the game is progressing without developer support.

 

Fragmented

Fragmented

The developer of Fragmented came out early in 2018 to say that the game was only in maintenance mode.

“Future patches will likely be similar to the last couple patches, focusing on streamlining and bug fixes.” Said Above & Beyond’s J.C. Smith. What began as an attempt to help out the other Above & Beyond game, The Repopulation, sadly failed to deliver salvation.

 

Fractured Space

Fractured Space

Fractured Space from Edge Case games entered maintenance mode this October. The spaceship based MOBA blended shooter combat with strategy and multistage maps to create something new for players to get to grips with. Sadly it wasn’t able to draw in a large number of players and entered maintenance mode. In a surprising turn, a month after the news of the quasi-shutdown, our business column reported on Wargaming picking up the developer Edge Case Games to work on a still-unannounced MMO. World of Spaceships anyone?

 

It’s sad to see so many great titles on this list. Did one of your favorites shut down this year? If so, which game did you move on to? Hopefully 2019 is a little kinder to our hearts.

WildStar Shares the Last of its World Story

Since WildStar is shutting down, players assumed that a great deal of plot details would be left twisting in the wind. A blog post shared on the game’s website, however, has offered the final pieces of the WildStar world story to help provide a least a bit of closure for fans of the MMO’s lore.

wildstar world story

For those unfamiliar with the story of WildStar, it was discovered by players in one of the game’s last major narrative updates that Drusera and the malevolent Entity were one and the same. The forward story beats, naturally, involved players working to split the two and destroy the Entity once and for all.

Performing this task would involve players working with a supercomputer named the Beholder to collect pureform primal essences of Fire, Earth, Wind, Water, and Life, then bring them to a hidden location to create a device capable of splitting Drusera and the Entity. After that, player characters would be tasked with completing the Beholder’s trials, and then ultimately asked to face the Entity itself.

The story steps in question all read like they were planned to be either high-level instances, dungeons, or raids, and the story even ends on a cliffhanger of sorts with the allusion that the Eldan Armada itself would be returning to Nexus. For those lorehounds out there who haven’t already read up, you can get the complete details here.

Our Thoughts

While it is nice to learn how the rest of WildStar’s story played out, we also can’t help but feel these encounters would have been a huge deal of fun to play. Regardless, it is very good of the folks behind WildStar to offer this bit of wrap-up for the fans.

WildStar Confirms a Shut Down Date

We’ve known it’s happening and have speculated on when, but today the folks at Carbine Studios have confirmed a WildStar shut down date, granting players a time frame for the MMO’s sunset along with a list of upcoming events.

wildstar shut down date

Wednesday, November 28th will be the last day for WildStar. As part of the winding down of operations, refunds for real-money purchases made since July 1st 2018 will be issued based on whatever platform was used. All real-money transactions have also been disengaged.

As for the game itself, the final update was released today which makes a number of changes. Omnibit drops and the Omnibit cap are being raised, while any Protobucks in your account can be traded for Omnibits at a 1:1 exchange rate. The game is also seeing a significant increase to gear drops, Primal Essence rewards and end game reputations. Finally, every player will be granted Signature status free of charge.

The announcement has also offered final dates for a number of in-game events, including the return of Shade’s Eve, Winterfest, and the zPrix Invitational hoverboard racing event. November 28th will also let players join with the devs for some fun in the MMO’s final few hours.

All of the information, dates and patch notes can be found here.

Our Thoughts

We expect that WildStar will go out much like it did when it arrived: with a rather loud bang. While it is still very sad to know that this MMO is shuttering, we have to be delighted with the fact that the game has at least a couple of months worth of enjoyable events left.

WildStar Hints at Shutdown by Year’s End

Let’s think of this less like time on death row and more like time enough to enjoy the game and say goodbye. One of the CMs of WildStar has offered something of a WildStar shutdown timetable in a rather vague reply to a discussion on the game’s official forums.

wildstar shutdown timetable

In a forum thread that’s been active since the 6th of this month, community manager Sunshine responded to one player’s lament that they won’t get to experience the game’s Shade’s Eve and Winterfest events, which are the MMO’s answers to Halloween and the winter holidays respectively.

“I assure you that both events will be available and we’ll let you know those dates soon,” reads Sunshine’s response.

While no hard confirmation is available at this time, this does put WildStar on track for being online until at least December, assuming the seasonal events in question aren’t launched out of their usual turn.

In the meantime, WildStar has kicked off another one of its usual events: the Boss Hunter Challenge, where extra rewards are waiting for players that take down World Bosses or Legendary Champions. That event is running between now and Friday, September 28th. Details are here.

Our Thoughts

It would certainly be nice to know exactly how much time WildStar has, but confirmation that these fun seasonal events will be coming back at some point or another is good news at least. In any MMO’s shutdown, we suspect fans will take any good news they can get, really.

NCSoft Decides to Bury WildStar

It appears that NCSoft has finally decided to cut ties with WildStar and its developer Carbine Studios. According to Kotaku, the staff was informed of the closures in a meeting earlier today.

WildStar

 

Of all the recent games to come to a close, WildStar is one of the least surprising. Many MMORPG players and news outlets had high hopes for the game during launch, but it was clear that things were rushed to meet deadlines. Numbers were initially high, but the population declined with the numerous bugs, progression issues, and general lack of listening to the community.

All of that, combined with a slow post-release schedule, ended up with the game being put on life support much earlier than expected. Eventually, WildStar went free-to-play, and it was slightly revived, but never returned to its former glory. Starting today, Carbine Studios will be closed with WildStar to eventually follow suit.

NCSoft made this announcement:

“Today, we are closing Carbine Studios and will begin the process of winding WildStar down to ultimately shutter the game,” NCSoft said in a statement. “WildStar players who have spent money within the game will be refunded purchases from July 1, 2018 until the payment system is shut off. We are also in the process of identifying the teams that will be doing the work to bring WildStar to a close. These decisions are very difficult to make and we are in the midst of shifting as many of our teammates as possible into other roles within the organization.”

Our Thoughts

WildStar is a game that I, and many others, had high hopes for but it simply couldn’t live up to expectations. It was the last real attempt at a “WoW killer” and looked to be successful on launch. However, bad management and game design decisions hurt the game early in its life and it simply couldn’t recover. It’s a sad day when any MMORPG, or game studio, shuts down and we wish the best for Carbine’s employees.

Wildstar Homecoming Invites Players to Build Together

You can now collaborate with your friends in Wildstar in an all new way, making a house. Wildstar Homecoming has launched, the prominent feature of which is the Community, a home you can make with your friends.

That isn’t the only part of the patch that deals with homes, developers have also introduced a new event that will take place for one week every month that focuses on the home. The Residential Renovation will feature a variety of housing related activities that will offer some amazing home décor upgrades. It will run for the first time from September 15th to September 22nd. They’re also holding a housing related contest which is only open to residents of North America and Europe, but, registration is now open for it. The prize is a sweet $2,500 which is to be split amongst the winning teams of each region. 7 honorable mentions will also win the opportunity to claim any 10 items from the Housing section of the in game store.

Of course, it wouldn’t really be a patch without some content, so they’ve elevated The Sanctuary of the Swordmaiden dungeon and Deep Space Exploration Expedition to Prime status.

It also happens to perfectly coincide with Madame Fay restocking with some of the coolest looking things you’ve ever seen. The Arcterra collection will only be available for a limited time so be sure to grab what you want while you can.

 

Our Thoughts

It’s fantastic to see this long requested feature finally added to Wildstar. For those who are housing junkies, and lets face it, we all are, this is a fantastic day. Hopefully, it will ignite the passion for those who may have lost it along the way. But at the top of our list are those adorable pets from Madame Fay. They might just be the cutest thing we’ve seen in an MMO this year. Who can say no to those adorable gigantic eyes?
