The Matrix Online pulls a Cypher, pulls the plug

All of you would-be Neos out there, know that you have limited time to tackle the remaining Agents of The Matrix Online. The game will be shutting down come July 31, 2009, says online community lead Daniel "Walrus" Myers. As sad as it is for the game to die a very silent, quick death, there's actually a lot to celebrate here.

The game released way back in 2005, and has undoubtedly been a large part of peoples' lives since then. Over the span of four years, countless Agents have fallen and the human resistance steadily grew. And as a thank you for all of the support, SOE will be coordinating an end-of-world event, though the details of what it will entail were not presented by Myers.
