In late January of 2014 Sony Online Entertainment announced that four of their MMO titles would be shutting down over the coming months: Free Realms and Star Wars: Clone Wars Adventures on March 31st, and Vanguard: Saga of Heroes and Wizardry Online on July 31st. Individual announcements were made by each team but in a statement to Kotaku at the time, SOE’s Senior Director of Global Communications, Michele Cagle, cited an overall “need to refocus […] resources in other areas” as the cause for these closures. Not apparent at the time, these moves to consolidate resources were likely planned as part of Sony’s sale of SOE to investment firm Columbus Nova which was finalized in February of 2015.
Steve George, SOE Producer, posted the following announcement to the game’s homepage in January of 2014:
Dear CWA Players,
It is with sadness that I announce the news that Star Wars: Clone Wars Adventures will end March 31, 2014. We’ve had many incredible experiences with you over the years. We’ve fought epic battles and made unbelievable memories. It was a very difficult decision to make, but we knew this day would come eventually.
Most importantly, I want to thank all of the players for their time and commitment to the game. You have made this Star Wars experience truly unforgettable. Stay tuned here for more details on what the next two months will look like.Steve George – Producer, Sony Online Entertainment
Work on a fan-run emulator for the game began in 2014 with some contributors recreating assets entirely and moving the game into the Unity 3D engine. As of 2020 a closed testing build of the Clone Wars Adventures Emulator (CWAEmu) is available for registered members.
