Guerrilla Games is killing Killzone by shutting down multiplayer servers for two games

All things must come to an end, this time the multiplayer servers for a couple of Killzone titles, and RIGS: Mechanized Combat League.

Earlier this week, Guerrilla announced on Twitter that online servers would be shutting down for a couple of Killzone games. “On 12 August 2022, online servers for Killzone: Mercenary, Killzone Shadow Fall (including Intercept Mode) and RIGS: Mechanized Combat League will shut down. Online features (including online multiplayer modes) will cease on that date,” reads the tweet. But single player modes will still be available.
