LEGO Universe To Shutdown

#1 Edited by on3moresoul (37 posts) -

Straight from the official website, Lego universe will be closing its doors early next year.

Hello Adventurers,
We are very sad to announce that LEGO Universe will be closing on Janurary 31, 2012. This was a very difficult decision to make, but unfortunately LEGO Universe has not been able to attract the number of members needed to keep the game open.
We are thankful to have had the opportunity to share this adventure wiith an amazing community of players. We hope you will continue to enjoy LEGO Universe for the last few months. As a thank you, if you are a paying subscriber on December 31, 2011, we will provide you the full game for the final month for free. Click here for the details.
Again, we want to thank the fantastic community of players who made LEGO Universe such a vibrant, fun and creative experience.
(You can discuss this article on the message boards)
Sincerely,
The LEGO Universe Team

Goodbye game.

Ditto. How long has the game been out for and did they do any sort of marketing? I haven't heard anything about LEGO Universe since it was in beta.

I must be thinking about some other LEGO game 'cause the GB wiki says this game was released 26th October last year.
