Earlier today it was announced on the Skylanders Universe Community Blog that the game will be closed down on the 29th of April. In the meantime they've boosted everyone's coins up to just shy of 10 million.

Quote: Community Blog
To commemorate the great times we've had, everyone has been given 9,999,999 coins to use between now and April 29th. Now you can customize your Skyland as you've always wanted! Or, unlock some new Skylanders in the Club House. Go check your account now!

They will however be leaving the mini-games up for people to play, and to kick off this new direction they've added a brand new mini-game called Block Fu.

Im kinda disappointed by this considering how it was a PC game (I'm kind of a PC user...) . But at least we still have swap force to look forward to.

Everyone should just buy everything they don't have yet from SSU, just so they can be rich.

I HAVE EVERYTHING NOW BUT IT'S ALL GOING TO DISAPPEAR IN LIKE A MONTH

Most MMOs, when gone, even if not the greatest, are mourned with wailing in the wikis, tears in forums, so forth.

This one'll probably just get a "Too bad" or "Meh, no big deal."

At least we get to spend and buy anything we've ever wanted until the universe ends.

The games still won't be as great as they were in Universe because:

  1. They only let you play 8 different characters.

So kinda sad about it ending,but let's go buy everything.

It was fun to play when it first came out but I eventually stopped playing it because my laptop struggled to run it. I'll try to log into Universe again before it goes.

Same here, was cool, just was very slow for me. Sad to see it go. (I know the minigames are staying.. but still)

If it's laggy, try several browsers, and maybe go into safe-mode temporarily. I'm working on spending up my fortune!

Maybe since SWAP Force features 256 combos, they find it hard to make animations and other stuff for all those SWAP Force Skylanders, plus the new characters.

Well, there goes any chance of me buying future whatever. Time to sell a lot more Giants stuff and learn how to hack my figures to have Hero Level 50.

They never updated it because nobody played because they never updated it. Nobody was visiting so they made no revenue from it and destroyed it... Back in my day, we fixed what was broken, not replace it.

Dude, you'll never be able to spend that whole fortune! I've already bought every bridge, every tree, every statue, every Skylander, every expansion, every gadget, every Skyland theme AND every lair. And yet I'm still up around 9,124,185 coins.

These coins are starting to get annoying, I wish I could just give them to some other players...

The webcodes can be used in the mobile games.
