Family Guy Online, which only opened up its beta to the public a few months ago, is shutting down on January 18, 2013.

The news comes from a posting on the Family Guy Online website. Refunds will be issued back to those who spent real money of the game during the beta.

There is another Family Guy game that released recently, but if our review is any indication, it probably shouldn't have ever left beta either.
