Do you still play Killlzone 2 or Killzone 3 multiplayer? If you plan to do it, better do it soon as the servers for both games will be shutting down in the first quarter of 2018. Guerrilla Games made the announcement today on the studio’s official website where it also confirmed that the single-player campaign will remain unaffected.
Here’s the studio’s message in full to their fans and supporters.
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.
I can’t believe it’s been six years already! If you want to up against the Helghans and experience Killzone 2 and 3’s kind of multiplayer, you still have a few months left. Speaking of Killzone 2, Guerrilla Games kinda admitted that the infamous Killzone 2 “reveal” trailer was not real.
