Calling All Cars

For anyone who still plays it online, we bring you the sad news that the online servers for Calling All Cars are to be shutdown, as of January 2010.

According to PSN Stores, people who still play the game are greeted with the following message:

“On January 14, 2010 the servers for Calling All Cars will be taken off-line. We would like to thank ya for yar support.”

The game was the first made under David Jaffe’s Eat, Sleep, Play studio.

    Could they not just modify the net code to be peer to peer rather than server based? Or is that a ridiculously huge job?

    Shame about this. One of those games I had earmarked for trying when I inevitably get a PS3(/4). Oh well :/

    Unfortunate, it’s a good game. There was never anybody online, though.

    AS long as split screen is still there this isn’t a big deal.

    well I think everyone who has it should at least dedicated 1/2 an hour a week to online until they shut it down. Its a fun game but came out at a time when PSN was still crawling. So it got over look. Maybe if they added trophies then more people would be interested.

    Would be a shame to see this game die completely. Online mode has been quiet, but not dead. I’m hoping the shutdown could be cancelled if there’s enough action on the servers. So I created a new Calling All Cars forum and I’ve been inviting players there.

    Those of you who like the game, check out the forum and feel free to register. Lets get some games going! The forum is at http://www.arctic-charge.com/cac/
