Star Wars Galaxies Is Coming Down…

It’s been a long time coming but it was just announced that Star Wars Galaxies will finally be coming down.  This isn’t terribly suprising news considering the game has been loosing popularity over the last few years in addition to the upcoming release of  “The Old Republic”.  The date for the shut down is December 15th.  Star Wars: Galaxies was one of the most anticipated MMO’s of all time back when it was released and it saw several expasnsions and updates over the course of it’s life.  Updates, however,  are probably the reason why “the magic is gone” in Star Wars Galaxies.  Star Wars galaxies maintained a fairly high player base until it’s content update that drastically changed the way character classes were handled, in particular the Jedi class.  When I played Star Wars Galaxies becoming a Jedi was hard/rare the content update changed it to where almost everyone could become a Jedi very easily just by choosing the class.  It’s sad to see something such as Star Wars fail but none the less Star Wars Galaxies will be imploding December 15.

    While I don’t thinkit will ever shutdown wow it would be nice to see another big player on the MMO field. WoW is sort of teh standard for the industry when it comes to MMO’s Or at least it seems that way. Welcome to the site BTW Luke… hope to see you around more!

    SW:TOR is going to be amazing though. Hopefully it shuts WoW down. I can’t stand what they did to WoW =/

    Although I liked the Star wars game it was a good run!
