Star Wars Galaxies Is Coming Down…


It’s been a long time com­ing but it was just announced that Star Wars Galax­ies will final­ly be com­ing down.  This isn’t ter­ri­bly supris­ing news con­sid­er­ing the game has been loos­ing pop­u­lar­i­ty over the last few years in addi­tion to the upcom­ing release of  “The Old Repub­lic”.  The date for the shut down is Decem­ber 15th.  Star Wars: Galax­ies was one of the most antic­i­pat­ed MMO’s of all time back when it was released and it saw sev­er­al expasn­sions and updates over the course of it’s life.  Updates, how­ev­er,  are prob­a­bly the rea­son why “the mag­ic is gone” in Star Wars Galax­ies.  Star Wars galax­ies main­tained a fair­ly high play­er base until it’s con­tent update that dras­ti­cal­ly changed the way char­ac­ter class­es were han­dled, in par­tic­u­lar the Jedi class.  When I played Star Wars Galax­ies becom­ing a Jedi was hard/rare the con­tent update changed it to where almost every­one could become a Jedi very eas­i­ly just by choos­ing the class.  It’s sad to see some­thing such as Star Wars fail but none the less Star Wars Galax­ies will be implod­ing Decem­ber 15.

    SW:TOR is going to be amaz­ing though. Hope­ful­ly it shuts WoW down. I can’t stand what they did to WoW =/
    Although I liked the Star wars game it was a good run!

    While I don’t thinkit will ever shut­down wow it would be nice to see anoth­er big play­er on the MMO field. WoW is sort of teh stan­dard for the indus­try when it comes to MMO’s Or at least it seems that way. Wel­come to the site BTW Luke… hope to see you around more!
