Sierra Shutting Down 21 Game Servers


Sierra has announced the upcoming closure of 21 game servers, ending support for a range of older titles including Empire Earth, Homeworld, Star Trek: Armada and Tribes 2.

The shutdown will take place November 1, according to an announcement on the official Sierra Community Forums. No reasons for the shutdown were given, although the recent merger between Activision and Sierra parent Vivendi has been rough on the label. On the other hand, most of the games in the list are getting on in years, and in the support forums for many of them the news went entirely unnoticed.

The full list includes:

  • Alien vs Predator 2
  • Arcanum
  • Caesar IV
  • Dark Reign 2
  • Emperor: Rise of the Middle Kingdom
  • Empire Earth
  • Empire Earth 2
  • Empire Earth: Age of Conquest
  • Ground Control
  • Ground Control2
  • Homeworld
  • Homeworld: Cataclysm
  • Nolf 2
  • Red Baron
  • Sanity
  • Star Trek: Armada
  • SWAT3: EE
  • The Incredible Machine
  • Tribes 2
  • Vampire
