Resident Evil Outbreak Servers Being Axed

March 5, 2007

Following the [url=]earlier confirmation[/url] from Konami concerning the shutting down of the online portion of Metal Gear Solid 3 Subsistence, word from [url=]Capcom’s official forums[/url] has indicated that the the servers supporting both Resident Evil Outbreak and Resident Evil Outbreak File #2 will be closed at the end of March.

[quote]Regretfully, conditions now dictate that we must close down this server effective from March 31, 2007. Naturally it will still be possible to play the game offline, but the online component will no longer be available.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of those who have been loyal members of the RE Outbreak community for the past months. [/quote]

The offline portion will not be affected, obviously, though from reading a number of the replies to this news on Capcom’s forums, it seems as if a lot of players were still playing this now two year old game online.
