Daybreak Games has announced that it will be closing down the PlanetSide 1 server on July 1st at 4PM PT. The MMOFPS launched in 2003 and has been active ever since in these 13 years following that date. PlanetSide had been running for free since 2014 but Daybreak has stated that due to financial and technical requirements it can no longer continue that support.
In a statement on the PlanetSide site there was a brief statement.
PlanetSide 1 has a very important history with Daybreak Games and a special place in the hearts of those who work on its successor. While we have run the game for free since 2014, due to evolving business needs and technical requirements it has become necessary to conclude this service.
Daybreak has asked the community to celebrate the game’s legacy and give it a good send off.
