Killzone 2 and 3 Online Servers Shutting Down in 2018

Sad news today, Guerrilla Games announced that the online servers for both Killzone 2 and Killzone 3 will be decommissioned on March 29th, 2018. The single player campaigns will stay intact, but the online multiplayer and online functionality for those games will no longer be accessible.

Here is the official statement from Guerrilla Games:

“On March 29th, 2018, after more than six years of operation and countless battles between the ISA and the Helghast, the online servers for Killzone 2 and Killzone 3 will be decommissioned. The single player campaign for both games will remain accessible, but online play and related functionality will no longer work.

As we near the end of the online lifecycle for Killzone 2 and Killzone 3, we’d like to express how grateful we are for all the support and feedback we’ve received from the community over the last eight years. Your enthusiasm is what drove us to hone our craft and grow as a studio. We hope you enjoyed playing Killzone 2 and Killzone 3 online as much as we did creating them.”

The Killzone franchise has been an important aspect of the PS Nation community with game nights and clans starting when Killzone 2 launched. Heck, I wouldn’t be a writer for PS Nation if I hadn’t got involved with the PS Nation Killzone 2 clan and offshoot Zeroes clan. So this news is probably hitting me harder than a normal person. With that said, we have until March 29th to get in as many games of Killzone 2 and Killzone 3 as we can. If anyone is interested in starting up a game night let us know in the comments below or start a discussion in the forums.
