WWE '12 Online Functionality Going Down

WWE '12 Online Functionality Going Down

Several achievements at stake

Written by litepink on 28 September 13 at 14:04

With WWE 2K14 right around the corner, it appears the inevitable is upon us with the online support for WWE '12 ceasing on October 29th of this year. There are achievements tied to content creation and online multiplayer that are affected.

WWE '12Start Xbox LIVE NXT!The Start Xbox LIVE NXT! achievement in WWE '12 worth 24 pointsPlay in an Xbox LIVE match (Player match/Ranked match)

WWE '12A Creator is BornThe A Creator is Born achievement in WWE '12 worth 27 pointsUpload one creation to the WWE Community Creations

WWE '12Secret AchievementThe Secret Achievement achievement in WWE '12 worth 85 pointsContinue playing to unlock this secret achievement

WWE '12CriticThe Critic achievement in WWE '12 worth 31 pointsReview 5 or more items on Community Creations


Then to really pour salt into the wound here, the online features are only available with the Online Axxess pass, which is free in all new copies of the game, or $9.99/£6.99 for those buying the game pre-owned. Please, don't DDT the messenger over this.

Coincidentally (or not), the online shutdown for WWE '12 occurs the same day WWE 2K14 is released in North America on October 29th. The game flies from the top rope November 1st in Europe.

It's a disappointment that they can't just drop the Axxess pass requirement for the last month to boost last minute activity.
Though when minimizing costs and removing servers, I'm sure that achievement/trophy distribution is the last thing on their minds.

And people love to hate on EA when they close servers for games after a little over 2 years. This game won't even be 2 years old when its servers are closed!
Got a game I have and haven't completed? Don't be shy and let me know.

I knew they would do something like this. It's the reason I played WWE 12 earlier than I planned to.

I guess once they introduced Community Creations all the servers have been dedicated servers, so maybe if they shut down the ones from previous games they can make the servers for 2k14 actually function properly.
There's nothing worse than a sad tree.

For people saying ''blah blah 07 servers are up'', that didn't have dedicated servers to shut down. I agree that it's too soon to shut this down but from what i've heard it never worked properly online anyway.

I'm getting a server unavailable message every time. Was it usually this bad or are they already dead. Never used the online code until today.
