Family Guy Online Shuts Down
Can't say this comes as a surprise. Family Guy Online is apparently shutting down on January 18th. The MMO which was set in the universe of the popular cartoon, was never fully released, only making it to open beta before getting its curtain closed.
Why was it shut down? Was it because Family Guy has been around for 11 seasons and people were simply tired of the cartoon family? That probably had something to do with it. Another even more likely reason was because 20th Century Fox, the network behind Family Guy, wasn't seeing enough profit. In fact, I am going to say that money was the main reason, just like it was the main reason they decided to make an MMO based off the series in the first place. Can you tell I don't care about Family Guy? Because I don't.
If you happened to spend any money on the browser MMO between October 22nd and December 21st, then you will be happy to know you will be getting a refund sometime in January. More details about refunds can be found on the main page here.
