PSA: LEGO Universe shutters today

Monday, 30th January 2012 23:07 GMT By Brenna Hillier

There’re just a few precious hours left to play LEGO Universe before the short-lived MMO closes down forever today.

LEGO Universe’s servers close down permanently at midnight EST (9:00PM PST/5:00AM GMT/4:00PM AEST).

Players are invited to share their memories and experiences on the game’s forum, and an FAQ on the closure is available, giving details on refunds for incomplete subscriptions and a sad summary of the game’s fate.

“After one year the game has nowhere near as many subscribers as we needed to be able to keep it running,” the FAQ states, apologising for breaking relationships with kids and ruining their relatives’ presents.

NetDevil’s bricktastic effort launched in October 2010 after more than two years of delays.

Thanks, Massively.

    Shame, really. I wish they could have left the servers running akin to Myst Online (which is now alive again, hooray!), as I know that this has a bit of a cult following.

    Always sad to see an MMO die off, really, even if I wasn’t a fan.
