According to Vincent Archer:

As an aside, it looks like Microsoft isn't alone in deciding this.

Ubisoft already dropped the Uru online segment (initial interest was
not very big I heard) and has decided to drop also The Matrix Online
(even if there's a big name recognition on that one).

Publishers getting second toughts?

All this, and EA is apparently shutting down Origin "UO" Systems as
well.
