PlayStation Home is set to close in both Europe and North America, Sony has announced.

A post on the US PlayStation community site detailing the end of the social hub in North America followed an earlier confirmation from Sony (via Games Industry) regarding the closure on Europe's side.

"Due to a shifting landscape, PlayStation Home will cease publishing new content on the 12th of November, 2014," Sony explained.

"Gamers in [Europe, US and Canada] will be able to download content until the 3rd of December, 2014. As a token of our tremendous gratitude to the community, we will also be releasing a series of free content prior to the platforms closure on the 31st of March, 2015."

The company has stated on multiple occasions it has no plans to bring a Home successor to PlayStation 4.
