Dear Star Wars Galaxies™ Community Member,

We write to you today to inform you that on December 15, 2011, Sony Online Entertainment (SOE) and LucasArts will end all services (MMO and Trading Card Game) for Star Wars Galaxies (SWG). The shutdown of SWG is a very difficult decision, but SOE and LucasArts have mutually agreed that the end of 2011 is the appropriate time to end the game.

We are extremely grateful to all of the SWG fans. We have had the rare opportunity to host one of the most dedicated and passionate online gaming communities and we truly appreciate the support we’ve received from each and every one of you over the course of the past eight years.

In recognition of your incredible loyalty, we are extending special Fan Appreciation offers to the current SWG community. We also plan to go out with a bang with a galaxy-ending in-game event in December and hope to see you all there. The details relating to these offers and events as well as the timeline and specifics regarding the discontinuation of the service, are provided below.

Again, we want to extend our heartfelt thanks to our player community for making SWG one of the best online communities in gaming history.

Sincerely,

Sony Online Entertainment & LucasArts

indeed a sad day

I had a fun couple of years with that game. Will be strange to see it dissapear alltogether from the MMO scene.

For the best really, I think of it as euthanising a chronic alzheimer's patient.

SWG has had a lot wrong with it for a long time that the Dev team had neither the resources or inclination to fix.

I made some very cool friends in this game though, top community.

Not at all.
Clonewarsadventures is marketed for kids.

LA is simply only keeping 1 star wars mmo with a dedicated developer team on the market.

Clonewarsadventures is a bundle of different games with one lobby. Its not an mmo.
