It is official. What was once rumor is now solid fact. Developers of one of my favorite games of all time, Socom II: U.S. Navy Seals, has now been completely shut down. Zipper Interactive developed not only the majority of Socom titles, but also the brand-spankin’-new Unit 13 for the Playstation Vita.
They once pushed the boundaries of online gameplay. They once had a franchise that was more fun to play than Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. Now, they’re dead and gone.
Recent titles Mag, Socom 4, and Unit 13 will continue to be supported for a currently unknown amount of time. We’ll keep you posted.
