Resident Evil: Outbreak online server to close

Capcom has announced that the online servers for its PlayStation 2 titles, Resident Evil: Outbreak and Monster Hunter will be closing permanently on December 31, 2007.

News comes following the revelation that the external company hosting the server for both games revealed it is pulling out of the PlayStation 2 online business indefinitely. Efforts were made in an attempt to extend the contract or possibly move the hosting elsewhere, but to no avail.

In regards to Resident Evil: Outbreak, this news only effects the North American and Japanese versions of the game, as the PAL release omitted online functionality altogether. Capcom previously closed the online servers for the sequel, File #2, earlier this year.
