A big change is coming to Sony’s communities. The company announced that the PlayStation forums will be joining. The topic was brought up in a PlayStation Community post on February 14, 2020, and the doors will shut on February 27, 2020.
No official statement was issued explaining why the PlayStation forums are being shuttered. It is a universal closure, however. In addition to the North American site, the statement was shared on the European one.
In the past, Sony has offered different ways for fans to connect. For example, there was PlayStation Home, which allowed people to have an avatar, build up a virtual living space, engage in experiences, and interact. There was also a PlayStation Communities app for mobile devices, to allow people to exchange information.
Currently, at the PlayStation forums, there are areas where people can have general discussions, get support, offer feedback on the forums, and talk about specific games and series like Farpoint, God of War, Gran Turismo, Helldivers, inFamous, The Last of Us, PlayStation All-Stars: Battle Royale, Sound Shapes, and Uncharted.
The PlayStation forums will close on February 27, 2020.
