The servers will go down or the game itself will be removed. Sometimes, fans will create new servers or they will outright remake the game from the ground-up, but many games fall through the cracks due to cease-and-desist orders, a lack of fans, or several other reasons.

This index is for online games that are no longer officially supported. Whether they are supported by fans or not is unimportant.

Compare to Abandonware, Missing Episode, and Canceled Video Games. Related to Temporary Online Content, where game content is made available online for a limited amount of time, and can no longer be obtained after it is taken offline.
