On July 28, 2020 Sony Interactive Entertainment will decommission the online service for MLB® The Show ™16 on the PlayStation®3 and PlayStation®4 systems. Multiplayer and other online features will no longer be available, but you will continue to be able to play the game and use Stubs in offline modes. We thank you for your devotion, and hope you’ve enjoyed your game experience.
On behalf of The Show Team, we’d like to thank you for your time spent playing MLB The Show 16.
Please keep in mind that MLB The Show 19 is currently available for $29.99 at many retail outlets. There are a number of new online features and content to experience. See you there!
Like it or not, games that rely on multiplayer will eventually go down, and this especially rings true for sports games. Today, Sony Interactive Entertainment San Diego Studio has released the MLB The Show 16 update 1.10, and it brings the servers offline!
