Asheron's Call 2 Closing

A post on the Asheron's Call 2 Website (thanks WarCry) has word from Turbine CEO Jeffrey Anderson that their MMORPG sequel is shutting down:
Closing Asheron's Call 2

Dear AC2 subscribers,

In spite of our hard work and the launch of Legions, AC2 has reached the point where it no longer makes sense to continue the service. We will be officially closing the Asheron's Call 2 service on 12/30/05. Until then, we plan to run live events, but we will not be adding any content or features.

We deeply appreciate the many dedicated fans of AC2 who have stood by us over the years. You have our sincerest gratitude.

Best regards,

Jeffrey Anderson
CEO, Turbine

I think WW2OL aka BAttleGround Europe is next followed by Matrix.

Holy crap. WWIIO is still running? I'm surprised, honestly.

And as for Matrix, it may survive, but it's support will be very small now that it is part of SOE's collective. Once the live events go and the flow of new mission content see a demise, I don't see much of a future in it.
