And it isn't the only one shutting down either.

And they only just lowered the price for the sub for all their games by 5$ just to remove 4 games from that list lol

Oh man, I don't care about Wizardry, but Vanguard too? Someone needs to buy that title and get it working right!

Death is nothing to us, since when we are, Death has not come, and when death has come, we are not.

Not too surprised by Wizardry. I heard that it was somewhat p2w. I think it would have been a good idea if the world was larger, but it seemed like a very narrow path and for a game with a permadeath system (I think it even had pvp anywhere too) it just wont really work out.

Makes sense.  Easier to support multiple titles from a single sub if you cut out the weakest links first.

A shame when it comes to Free Realms. When first released, it was actually a pretty cool little time-waster, with lots to do & plenty of fun puzzle mini-games to play. Then they decided to turn on extra greedy mode, and killed it off quicker than naked pictures of Rosie O'Donnell would a straight (and probably gay, for that matter) teenager's libido.

Clone Wars adventures was Free Realms with a Star Wars skin, and obviously fared no better.

Vanguard was in interesting concept gone horribly unrealized due to the piss poor management of the idiot now begging for cash on Kickstarter so he can repeat the process. That and even now it's buggier than a big bug bugging out on a dune buggy (thanks for that, Yahtzee!).

Wizardry Online was a grind game about exploring the same gray cave over and over again, while facing permadeath due to PKs.

My point is that they announced their sub for all their games like it was something completely new and cool, while in fact it had always been there and they had just lowered the price by 5$.

Now after more people bought the lowered sub they just removed some games from the list - therefore lowering the value of that sub.

Big companies  just love to shit on their customers.

It was a god-awful game from day one of release.  It's about time a game company euthanized their lame ducks.
