EA Shutting Down Online Service For Over A Dozen Games

by Rainier on July 13, 2011 @ 12:19 a.m. PDT

EA announced that servers for the games listed below will be shut down on the indicated dates, just like it has the past few years. Fans may continue to play the games online up until these dates, but certain community programs may begin to close down prior to the shutdown dates.

The decisions to retire older EA games are never easy.  The development teams and operational staff pour their hearts into these games almost as much as the customers playing them and it is hard to see one retired.  But as games get replaced with newer titles, the number of players still enjoying the older games dwindles below a point -- fewer than 1% of all peak online players across all EA titles -- where it’s feasible to continue the behind-the-scenes work involved with keeping these games up and running. We would rather our hard-working engineering and IT staff focus on keeping a positive experience for the other 99% of customers playing our more popular games.  We hope you have gotten many hours of enjoyment out of the games and we appreciate your ongoing patronage.

If you have further questions about your account or the shut down of these services, please visit http://support.ea.com.

Thank you,
Electronic Arts
