article imageSony to shutdown 'SOCOM' and 'MAG' servers

Sony has announced via Twitter that it will shutdown multiplayer servers for 'SOCOM 4: U.S. Navy SEALs', 'SOCOM: U.S. Navy SEALs Confrontation', and 'MAG' in early 2014.
The Tweet stated: "Advisory: Online multiplayer services for MAG, SOCOM Confrontation, and SOCOM 4 will be ending on 01/28/14."
Its been speculated that the decisions is based on the games poor sales and lack of players online. SOCOM 4 and MAG were praised by critics but sold poorly while SOCOM: Confrontation was panned by fans and critics.
The announcement comes a year after Sony shutdown Zipper Interactive (the studio that developed SOCOM 4 and MAG) along with all SOCOM: U.S. Navy SEALs multiplayer servers for the PlayStation 2 and PlayStation Portable.
Sony's decisions makes it that all SOCOM-games will no longer have their online multiplayer feature. This also means that MAG and SOCOM: Confrontation will no longer be playable.
SOCOM is a series of third-person tactical shooters developed exclusively for Sony's gaming systems. The series started with SOCOM: U.S. Navy SEALs, which was one of the first console games to feature online multiplayer.
