Funcom announced earlier this month that LEGO Minifigures Online will be shutting down on September 30th.
Funcom explained in its annual report published in April that LEGO Minifigures Online had been performing below expectations by a significant margin for quite some time. The development team was moved to other projects and the license agreement Funcom made with LEGO in order to create the game would be ending in October. LEGO Minifigures Online would almost assuredly be shut down before the license agreement ended. All that was left was for Funcom to confirm it.
As part of preparations for the game’s inevitable end, LEGO Minifigures Online has been removed from sale as of June 6th. In-game chat has been disabled, although the reason behind disabling it is unclear. The servers will be shut down for good on September 30th, the day before the license agreement is set to expire in October.
