I already ran down the quick history of LEGO Universe back in November.
That was when they announced that the game would be shutting down. And the date of the shut down has come and gone. The game joins an ever growing list of MMOs that have seen their last day.
Actually, their original press release said midnight on January 31, 2012, but was anybody really holding out for that last day?
There is still a FAQ regarding the closure, which will probably remain for a while.
