Electronic Arts has announced plans to shut down some of it’s online titles at the end of March on a selection of Wii, Xbox 360, PS3, iPhone, and ipad games.
“The decisions to retire older EA games are never easy,” EA said in a note on its website. “But as games get replaced with newer titles, the number of players still enjoying the older games dwindles to a level – fewer than 1 percent of all peak online players across all EA titles – where it’s no longer feasible to continue the behind-the-scenes work involved with keeping these games up and running.“
On April 13, EA will shutter 11 more games: Boom Blox Bash Party for Wii; Burnout Revenge for Xbox 360; EA Create for PC, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360; EA Sports Active 2.0 for PS3, Wii, and Xbox 360; EA Sports Active NFL Training Camp for Wii; FIFA 10 for PlayStation Portable and Wii; The Godfather II for PC, PS3, and Xbox 360; MMA for PS3 and Xbox 360; Need for Speed ProStreet for PS3 and Xbox 360; The Saboteur (and The Midnight Club access) for PS3 and Xbox 360; and Spare Parts for PS3 and Xbox 360.
