Goldeneye 007 Wii Severs Shutting Down in Early 2018
According to Nintendo's Japanese support page, Goldeneye 007's multiplayer servers will be going offline on March 30, 2018.
If you are a fan of Goldeneye 007 for the Wii and you like the game’s online mode then we have some bad news for you. Today, Nintendo announced that the online functionality for the first-person shooter is set to go offline in just a few months, on March 30, 2018, at 10:00 a.m.
The news was announced via Nintendo’s Japanese support site, so, as of the time of this writing, it’s unknown whether or not other areas will be affected by this. The post also apologized to everyone who was still using the game’s online service, while also thanking customers for sticking with the game for so long.
The game’s servers will be over seven years old by the time they go offline, so it’s safe to say that Goldeneye 007 has most certainly had a long, and prosperous life. Still, it’s always sad when games go offline. Just last week it was revealed that the servers for both Killzone 2 and Killzone 3 will be going offline in the coming months after nine years of service.
Goldeneye 007 was originally released on Wii and DS systems on November 2, 2010, and eventually made its way to PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 a year later, on November 1, 2011, as Goldeneye 007: Reloaded.
