Daybreak Game Company announced on October 30th, 2017 that the PlayStation 3 version of DC Universe Online would be shut down on January 31st, 2018. The post from the team explains:
“We are writing today to inform you that after many years of supporting DC Universe Online (DCUO) on PlayStation 3, we will officially shut down PlayStation 3 support on January 31st, 2018.
In order to deliver the highest quality experience to our players, we will focus our resources on further optimizing the game for PlayStation 4. While there is still time to continue exploring DCUO on the PS3, we want to give you advanced notice so you can prepare for these future changes.
All of your player information, subscriptions, DLC purchases, and game information transfer automatically to the PlayStation 4 when you log in with the same PSN account. If you have not yet upgraded to the PlayStation 4, please consider doing so now, so that you can continue to enjoy the best DCUO experience without interruption.”
DC Universe Online remains available on Steam, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. The PlayStation 3 version also remains available, albeit unplayable, on physical media as well.
