Back in September 2018 Sony broke the news that online servers for PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, Sounds & Shapes, Warhawk, and Twisted Metal would be going offline on October 25th.
Well, today marks November 2nd.. and the games are still LIVE. Sony has begun emailing us fans the following:
‘Dear valued PlayStation customer,
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 https://manuals.playstation.net/document/en/ps3/current/settings/connectwireless.html. 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.
Sincerely, The PlayStation® Team
There you have it! Sony said they were going to do a better job of listening to their fanbase and this definitely shows they’re trying. Guess they’re hoping by the end of January there will be a ton of new games you’ll want to play.
