World in Time Poster The Doctor Who-inspired online multiplayer role-playing game Worlds in Time is to cease operation on 28th February 2014.

The game was first announced by the BBC Press Office prior to the San Francisco Game Developers Conference on 24th February 2011. On 17th November 2011, it was announced through a press release that publisher Sega would be collaborating with BBC Worldwide in the production of the game after having acquired Three Rings Design. Since its official release in March 2012, labelled The first-ever Doctor Who online game, it was free to play online for players aged 13 and above (with those between 13 and 15 needing parental permission to participate) meeting the game's terms and conditions.

An announcement email was sent out recently to members stating:
We are sorry to report that Doctor Who: Worlds in Time will discontinue service.

The game will no longer be accepting transactions from players. Existing players are welcome to use their earned in-game currency over the next two months. Customer support and game maintenance will be available through the shutdown date.
As an additional thank-you to "the loyal players of Worlds in Time for supporting the game through its years of operation", players have been offered a 10% discount code at the BBC Shop.
