Like so many other games these days online play eventually disappears into the Matrix - forever lost to gamers forever. Never again will you be able to walk those hallowed halls with your mates in online co-op. On the 10th anniversary of the SOCOM franchise, Sony is shutting down the servers for several of their games, including SOCOM: Combined Assault and SOCOM: Fireteam Bravo 3 - both the co-op titles.
Here's the complete list of title's servers to be shut down.
- SOCOM: U.S. Navy SEALs
- SOCOM II: U.S. Navy SEALs
- SOCOM 3: U.S. Navy SEALs
- SOCOM Combined Assault
- SOCOM: Fireteam Bravo
- SOCOM: Fireteam Bravo 2
- SOCOM: Fireteam Bravo 3
- SOCOM: U.S. Navy SEALs Tactical Strike
Luckily the recent SOCOM 4 on PlayStation 3 is unaffected. So if you plan to get some co-op gaming in with either of these title, you better do it before August 31st, 2012.
