LEGO Universe, the official LEGO MMO, launched in October of 2010 and is now about to close it’s virtual doors just 15 months after it’s launch. This is a sad situation, but so goes the MMO industry. The reason for the shut down is a lack of funds to keep the title viable. On the forum, players can leave their memories of the game for others to see. The dev team left this message:
“Our decision to end LEGO Universe is similar to decisions we also make with LEGO Product collection, where favourite sets come and go to make space for new sets. It was time for LEGO Universe to end and hopefully new digital LEGO experiences will come in the future.”
