Playstation Announces Server Shutdowns for Nine Titles

By Rebecca Smith, 8 months ago
The holiday season is supposed to be a happy time where people spend time with their family and friends. Sony had a slightly different take on the seasonal period. Instead, the company chose to use the quiet time to announce server shutdowns for not one but nine different Playstation 3 and Vita titles.

The first of the titles to close is Polyphony Digital's Gran Turismo 6. The online servers for this game will close on March 28th. Meanwhile, January 31st is the final day that players will be able to purchase the game's DLC. While the offline parts of the game will still be available to play, players will not be able to access the Community, Open Lobby, Quick Match, and Seasonal Events from the end of March. In-game credits will no longer be able to be redeemed and tracks can not be transferred from the GT6 Track Path Editor on Google Play after March 28th either. Most importantly, though, no trophies will be affected by the closure.

March 29th is the final date for seven titles. First is EyePet (and EyePet Move Edition). All online services will be closed and will make the following trophy discontinued:

EyePet & Friends is also closing on March 29th. All online services will be closed but this won't affect any of the game's trophies as they can all be earned offline.

Killzone 2 and its DLC is next for closure on March 29th. All online services will be closed and will make the following trophies discontinued:

Like its predecessor, Killzone 3 and its DLC will also be taken offline on March 29th. This title also has a lot of trophies that will become discontinued on this date:

This also affects Killzone 3 Multiplayer. As the online services will be removed on March 29th, this will make this title unplayable and render all of the game's 42 trophies as discontinued. You can check out a full list of these here.

The sixth title to be affected is WipEout HD and its DLC. The list of discontinued trophies for this title isn't as long so we haven't put these in a spoiler:

The final game to have its services closed is Ace Combat Infinity. This game's servers will be closed on March 31st at 1:00 a.m. PT / 4:00 a.m. ET / 8:00 a.m. UTC / 5:00 p.m. JST, rendering all of the game's 15 trophies as discontinued. You can see a full list of these here. Before this, players will no longer be able to purchase in-game items from January 9th, although players will be able to use their purchased items until the servers are closed at the end of March. Bandai Namco released a trailer to commemorate the game's four years of existence.


As a side note, the companion iOS/Android app Knack’s Quest will be taken offline on March 29th. This means that players will no longer be able to send or receive items in Knack, but this won't affect any trophies.

This seems like the perfect time to remind you about some more server closures that had been announced prior to the holiday season. Gravity Rush 2 will be closing on January 19th as detailed here; this won't affect any trophies. DC Universe Online (PS3) will close on January 31st, and will take all of its 123 trophies with it as detailed here. Saints Row: The Third and Saints Row IV also close on January 31st — both of these render a trophy as discontinued and you can find those details here.

The following month, Demon's Souls will close on February 28th. This will end the game's in-game messaging, player death locations, and World Tendency features but will not render any trophies discontinued. Finally, Pro Evolution Soccer 2017 will be taken offline on May 17th. You can find a full list of discontinued trophies here.

At the end of last year, TrueTrophies gained an alert system for people to receive a notification if a game's server was marked for closure on the site. If you're interested in receiving these notifications, you can change your settings here to be able to receive them.
