Star Wars Galaxies Officially Shuts Down

Posted on December 16, 2011 AT 05:49am

THE BUZZ: After eight years in service, Sony Online Entertainment has officially closed the doors its MMO Star Wars Galaxies.

In the final celebrations the developers sent out X-Wings, giant enemies and a nice fireworks display before turning the lights out one last time. ”On behalf of the Star Wars Galaxies team, thank you. We have truly enjoyed getting to know you – our dedicated players – over the years. From in-game events to Fan Faires, we appreciate your continued loyalty and support. It would not have been possible without you,” said SOE.

EGM’s TAKE: Galaxies death was an inevitability with The Old Republic beginning early access a few days ago and launching on the 20th of this month.

Matthew Bennett, Associate Editor
Matthew Bennett finally got his big break with EGM three years ago, following years of volunteer work for various sites. An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream.
