Kill Strain PS4 PlayStation 4 1

Call it a hunch, but we don't think Sony San Diego's asymmetric MOBA Kill Strain quite worked out as intended. You may recall the platform holder laying off the portion of the team that worked on the free-to-play foray last September, and now it's announced its intention to close the title's servers on 1st July – which means it won't even have survived a year. Oops.

Other games set to lose access to their online components on the aforementioned date include the surprisingly enjoyable SIXAXIS-powered High Velocity Bowling and PlayStation Move trio Sports Champions, Sports Champions 2, and Medieval Moves: Deadmund's Quest. On the PlayStation Vita, launch title ModNation Racers: Road Trip will also lose its network features.

It's like a big, fat Sony San Diego server switch-off. Maybe MLB The Show 17 needs some more bandwidth – we've heard its multiplayer is flaky at best.
