PS3 Games Servers Shutdown Postponed

Warhawk, Twisted Metal, Sound Shapes, and PlayStation All-Stars: Battle Royale were originally scheduled to have their PS3 servers shut down on October 25. Now, it seems that day has been pushed as far as January 31, 2019. Word of this news comes from an email sent to PlayStation Network Users, presumably players who, at one time or another, took part in online services for any of the games named. In that email is stated:

We wanted to update you on a planned service shut down, which impacts online access for Warhawk, Twisted Metal, PlayStation All-Stars: Battle Royale, and Sound Shapes. This has now been extended to January 31, 2019 at 12:00 AM PT.

Following this shutdown, Warhawk will no longer be playable unless the PS3 system is set to LAN mode for local network play. For Twisted Metal and PlayStation All-Stars: Battle Royale, users can play the campaign offline as well as local (couch) multiplayer in split screen mode. For Sound Shapes, users will be able to play the campaign and all DLC purchases as well as create their own levels, however, users won’t be able to share their levels with the community or download community created levels.

While sad news, the servers staying up will give players some extra time to jump in and enjoy these great games online that much longer.
