Infantry Online was shut down on March 29th, 2012. The team announced the shutdown of this and several SOE titles one month earlier:
It’s Time to Bid a Fond Farewell
It is with a heavy heart that we announce today the imminent sunsetting of four of our long-standing game services on March 29, 2012, including Cosmic Rift®, Infantry®, Star Chamber: The Harbinger Saga and EverQuest® Online Adventures. Each of these games shares a special place in both ours and our players’ hearts. This is not an easy decision, but there comes a time when it’s best for our developers to move on to the next adventure, and that day has come.
As a reward to the players of EverQuest® Online Adventures, we will be giving you 3 months of Gold Membership in both EverQuest® and EverQuest® II. We greatly appreciate all of you and hope that you choose to join us in another version of the Norrath that we all love. These gold memberships will be available starting on Friday, March 16, 2012.
We would like to thank our players for their loyalty and for sharing the good times on these games. It’s been a blast. And we hope to keep gaming with all of you in our other great games here at SOE. Let’s keep pushing the boundaries of MMO gaming together!
The SOE team
Even before being shut down, the Infantry community was collecting and creating content for the game outside of its official site and servers. After the shut down the game was re-launched by the community at freeinfantry.com and is still available to play today.
