EA to Shutdown 29 Online Game Servers

Electronic Arts has announced that it will shut down 29 online game servers in the months of August and October. The majority of the games are EA Sports titles. No specific reason was given for the shutdowns, but the move is probably due to a low subscription base for the online services. The official announcement by EA states:

The following is an important update regarding online service for some older EA titles.

Servers for the games listed below will be shut down on the indicated dates. You 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.

All of us at EA would like to thank you for your valued participation in our online gaming community and hope that your enthusiasm for these games extends to our current lineup and beyond.

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
