Star Wars Galaxies to close up shop in December

Sony Online Entertainment and LucasArts are shutting down the massively multiplayer online portion of Star Wars Galaxies, in addition to the trading card game, on December 15, 2011.

Yeah, MMO-loving Star Wars fans have The Old Republic to look forward to, but it's still sad to see a long-running game close down for good. There's something oddly eerie about online games all of a sudden ceasing to exist.

"During the last week that SWG is available, we're inviting the community to participate in a galaxy-ending event," says the official site, which also offers details on fan appreciation offers and important dates.

"We're going to end with a bang and we want the final chapter of the galaxy to be written in part by the dedicated and passionate SWG community. Details will be announced at a later date."
