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

I figured the game would eventually shut down when TOR was announced. Oh well, I still have great memories of this game and hope to see everyone when TOR drops.

TBH! S.O.E are gullable, lucasarts told em the mayans prediction is correct, the world will end in 2012 and that they want to shutdown there online games to let families enjoy the remaining time they have left... j/k Lucasarts dont want the two (ToR) co-existing so decided to axe s.o.e, it's logical but unethical.

Roll on ToR, seeyas on the other side...

there are still the 45days free play time as compensation for the 14d downtime in May active.

If you login into any unsubscribed account in good standing on or before August 31st, 2011, your account will be on 45 days free play time. Then you have to kick in a subscription, if you want to continue playing.

So if they logged into the account for the first time since the servers were up again, they are on their 45 days now. SWG is not F2P from what i know, they even charge subscriptions for the time until they stop billing on October 15th.
