Sonic Runners was released last year and has enjoyed success as a fun endless running side-scroller game. Yesterday, SEGA released a statement announcing that Sonic Runners would be closing its servers on July 27th.
The full press release can be seen below:

Considering the success that Sonic Runners has had, it’s strange and unfortunate to hear that the game’s servers will be closing down in two months. What did you think of Sonic Runners? Sound off in the comments below!
