Sega has decided to shutdown the online bit for its mech-sim Chromehounds on January 6.
Here’s the post from the official forums:
“We regret to inform everyone that the Chromehounds online service will be closing on January 6, 2010. At this time, all online components for Chromehounds will no longer be accessible and the game will only be available for play in offline modes.
“We would like to thank everyone in the Chromehounds community for their passion and support over the past 3 years of service. Please enjoy the remaining time with the game.”
Released back in 2006, it had major network problems from the get go, but still managed to have a following.
