    WWE 13 shuts down this year, 2 years old as of 2K15.
    Next year I bet 2K14 shuts down, 2 years old as of 2K16.

    This games servers ended around 2K15, 2K seems to run a 2 year cycle from what I seen on these series. I guess 2 games stressing the servers at any given time they figure is enough.

    Think EA Sports makes money from Madden NFL 12? Probably not but guess what? That servers still online 4 years in. Why? Who knows and who cares but apparently it isn't bankrupting them by keeping it active. What's 2K's excuse. They're too cheap?

    So what? Good for EA, who cares. I'm pretty sure GTA4 servers servers are still up, has nothing to do with WWE games. Which, seeing 2K and Rockstar are both owned by Take-Two, GTA might actually be a better comparison then MLB.

    But, for all we know Madden 12 might actually still be populated regularly, and that's why it's up.

    WWE is a niche market as is, a already niche market where it seems half the people playing still prefer offline to online. Two years seems plenty enough time. Really how many people are still playing 12 or 13 now? There is no reason to keep these games going.

    What I'm interested to see is 2K14. Seeing 2K15 was a stripped back reboot chances are people are either playing 2K14 or 2K16. So will 2K shut down 14 this year keeping to the 2 year trend, or will they let it go a third year?

    Really?

    Well I admit that's actually a bit of a surprise they didn't give 14 that extra year. But anyway, seems that answered that, then.

    Sad as it's a game I loved. (I like WWE2K15/16 but 14 had stuff 15/16 removed)
