Come January 28, 2014, the SOCOM series will essentially be over as Sony will be shutting down online functionality for Slant Six’s SOCOM Confrontation and Zipper’s SOCOM 4, both of which were PS3 games and the last of the series to have servers running. Furthermore, Zipper’s MAG, the online FPS that supported 256-player battles, is also going offline that day. Of those three games, SOCOM 4 is the only one with any sort of offline play. Zipper Interactive was closed by Sony last year after they finished their Vita shooter Unit 13, and Slant Six, an independent studio, is in flux since they launched Operaction Raccoon City. RIP.
