Warhawk and other PS3 games have had their server shutdowns delayed until January 31, 2019. The games were originally due to go offline late last month, even though in Warhawk’s case, owners did not receive the promised 90 days notice. Sony did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the extension.
The sci-fi MMO WildStar will shutdown on November 28. This announcement follows the news earlier this month that the game’s makers, Carbine Studios, would be shutting down. Refunds for recent purchases will go out on October 3 but there are still a few events planned over the next several weeks.
Evolve’s dedicated servers are shutting down on September 3, publisher 2K Games announced today. While peer-to-peer multiplayer will still be around for Legacy Evolve, the free-to-play version called Evolve Stage 2 will be going away. Ranked Hunt mode will also disappear, along with leaderboards and in-game store.
