Matrix Online to End

A post to the Sony Station Forums announces that Matrix Online will go dark on July 31, ending the run for this ambitious MMORPG that tied-in to the Matrix series of sci-fi movies (thanks Patrik). There is a FAQ about this that basically answers "no" to the inevitable questions about whether it will be possible for fans to set up servers to keep the game going, and they also outline how existing subscriptions will be handled after players take their blue pills:

As of June 1, 2009 any currently entitled active player with an account in billing will not be billed again. For players who have previously purchased prepaid subscription time via a multi-month subscription service, SOE game time card or other retail game time card that extends the service period past June 1, 2009, SOE will refund these accounts for the unused time and where indicated will mail refund checks to the current billing address on the account. Please be sure to update your email and physical address in your Station Account as this will be critical to the refund process.

This also marks the first time SOE has shut down an MMO.

Hopefully my beloved Planetside isn't next.

If you don't like where gaming is heading, stop giving your money to the people who are taking it in that direction.

I never got past the initial tutorial sequence. Never regretted that.

Surprised it lasted this long.
+1

Then again, after the second and third movies tanked the brand wasn't worth what it used to be and the game seemed pretty weak at best.

I don't believe in a lot of things, but I do believe in duct tape.

Another one bites the dust... it's a shame since I really like the matrix universe, but nothing about this really compelled me to try it.

Oh well.
