Planetside 1 has been around for a long time, I remember checking it out before launch at a press event in San Francisco and it was impressive at the time. Now it’s coming to an end after thirteen years.
Daybreak announced the server shut down today and the server will go dark on 1 July.
While we hope you are as excited as we are about the recent changes, we do have to make a more solemn announcement. On July 1st, at 4:00 PM PT, we will be closing the PlanetSide 1 server. PlanetSide 1 has a very important history with Daybreak Games and a special place in the hearts of those who work on its successor. While we have run the game for free since 2014, due to evolving business needs and technical requirements it has become necessary to conclude this service.
We hope you will take this opportunity to enjoy the remaining time available with each other and please help us give PlanetSide 1 the sendoff it deserves.
