Electronic Arts will be shutting down the severs for a few of its games. These games are said to be played be a mere 1% of EA’s customer base, and the games that are going to lose their online gameplay support have newer titles available.
The games include Battlefield 2: Modern Combat, Need For Speed: Most Wanted, the original Army of Two, the original Skate release, and a few others.
“The decisions to retire older EA games are never easy,” stated the recent service update. “We would rather our hard-working engineering and IT staff focus on keeping a positive experience for the other 99 percent of customers playing our more popular games.”
Fortunately, all of the games being retired have a sequel or updated iteration still functioning online. The full schedule of upcoming server shutdowns is available here.
