Customer says publisher has failed to meet promise of Online Pass support
Electronic Arts is to switch off its online servers for eleven contemporary games, one of which was released as recently as 2011, due to what it claims to be low activity rates.
The server switch-offs, commencing April 13th, will block online play on various Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 games such as MMA and Need for Speed ProStreet.
The full list of affected games can be found below.
One, a PSN and XBLA game called Spare Parts, was the last commercial project released by now defunct Guildford studio EA Bright Light. The game launched in Janruary 2011.
EA said the decision to retire older games is “never easy”, but said it shuts down game servers when it is “no longer feasible to continue the behind-the-scenes work involved with keeping these games up and running”.
