While those games will still have their single-player campaigns playable, MAG and SOCOM: Confrontation will basically become coasters on Jan. 28, 2014. Both games are online only and don't support anyway to play offline. SOCOM: Special Forces will also see its multiplayer switched off on that date but still has an offline mode to play.
Multiplayer being switched off for games is the unfortunate side effect of running dedicated servers to support specific titles. Eventually, the player population does not justify the cost of running and maintaining these servers so they are switched off.
