For the (likely) few of you that have still been playing Killzone 2 and Killzone 3, we have some bad news for you. Guerrilla has announced today that after more than six years of operations and countless battles, the online servers for both Killzone titles will be decommissioned next year on March 29, 2018.. The single-player campaign for both games will still remain accessible, but online play and related functionality will no longer work.
In a statement over on the Guerrilla blog, the studio expressed gratitude toward the fanbase for even supporting the two titles for so long and noted that their enthusiasm and love for the game is what helps them grow as a studio. While the Killzone 2 and 3 servers may be shutting down, the game will still live on with its single-player campaign and of course in the memory of all those who played it.
For the full quote from Guerrilla on the closing of the Killzone 2 and 3 servers, check out below:
On March 29th, 2018, after more than six years of operation and countless battles between the ISA and the Helghast, the online servers for Killzone 2 and Killzone 3 will be decommissioned. The single player campaign for both games will remain accessible, but online play and related functionality will no longer work.
As we near the end of the online lifecycle for Killzone 2 and Killzone 3, we’d like to express how grateful we are for all the support and feedback we’ve received from the community over the last eight years. Your enthusiasm is what drove us to hone our craft and grow as a studio. We hope you enjoyed playing Killzone 2 and Killzone 3 online as much as we did creating them.
