One of the more interesting MMO experiments is about to see its end. LEGO Universe, the family-friendly online free-to-play game featuring everybody's favorite Danish building block, will be shutting down its servers at the end of January after a little over a year of operation.

LEGO Universe claims almost 2 million players among its ranks but, according to LEGO Universe VP Jesper Vilstrup, was unable to, "build a satisfactory revenue model," by failing to convert enough of those players to paying subscribers. Bummer. I thought it was a pretty neat game but, then again, I didn't cough up my credit card info either.
