Naughty Dog Bids Farewell to PS3 Servers as It Shuts Down Multiplayer for Uncharted and The Last Of Us

PS3 Servers Close Doors

After 10 years of operation, Naughty Dog has announced that
the company will be shutting down multiplayer servers for their PlayStation 3
games. By the announcement made on their developer blog and Twitter, they confirmed
that servers for Uncharted, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, Uncharted 3: Drake’s
Deception, The Last of Us, and The Last of Us: Left Behind will forever close
doors.

On the blog,
Naughty Dog showed appreciation to its solid fanbase and thanked all of the
players who have stayed with them for this long.

“Thank you
to everyone who has played Uncharted and The Last of Us multiplayer on PS3 and
for all of your incredible enthusiasm, feedback, and support”, they wrote

After nearly 10 years, we will be bidding farewell to Uncharted 2, Uncharted 3, and The Last of Us multiplayer on PS3 and taking servers offline on Sept 3, 2019 [5PM PT]. In preparation, we’re making all multiplayer DLC on PS3 free starting today. Details: https://t.co/BU4OfzYOxS pic.twitter.com/H7N0hV7xOW

One Last Time

However, the
shutdown isn’t going to be immediate, as the servers won’t go down until
September 3rd, 2019. Fans will still have till Labor Day weekend to
plug in their PS3 and enjoy its final moments. Naughty Dog also said that
starting today all multiplayer DLC for these games will also be free until the
shutdown.

We can’t
help but think that this is not a surprising move from Naughty Dog for various
reasons. First of all, with the PS5 generation nearing its entry, it makes
sense for these long-running PS3 servers that are still alive to bid their
final goodbyes. The good news is, instead of getting an abrupt support cut-off,
players are getting a fair amount of warning before the actual shutdown.

New Hype

Fans should
not be sad, though. With old doors closing, new ones are about to open. Despite
Sony skipping this year’s E3, Naughty Dog is still working hard on the highly
anticipated Last of Us: 2 productions.
