Legends of Norrath is a popular trading card game set in the EverQuest universe that originally launched on September 5, 2007.  Daybreak Game Company stated that the game has not been in “active development” for some time, and that it is in the company’s interests to close the servers.  The servers for Legends of Norrath will shut down on Wednesday, August 17 at 12pm PT.

It is always sad to see old online games get shut down, but it is good to know that the PlanetSide series will live on in PlanetSide 2 which is currently available on PC and PS4.  EverQuest fans aren’t so lucky however, as EverQuest Next was recently cancelled.
