EA Confirms It Will Remove Online Passes From Old Games

Two weeks ago we brought you the quite surprising news that EA was scrapping the online pass system for all of its games. However, we were unsure whether that meant old/current/new games would have the online passes scrapped. My educated guess would of been that new games and future releases would get the online pass system removed by according to an EA official confirmation all of their games that use the online pass will have it scrapped.

The move surprised quite a lot of people when EA took it, and now it appears they have laid out plans to gradually phase the online pass out. In the coming weeks EA will either remove the online pass from games via patches and updates or the company will make the passes free on the PlayStation Store, Xbox Live Marketplace and so on. Not many other details were given by the confirmation from EA but expect them to announce more details in the future such as a full list of affected games and what remedial actions will be used for those games to remove the online passes.

What are your thoughts on this story? Are you surprised to see EA going back to old games (in addition to new and current games) to remove their online passes?

    The only thing that would surprise me from EA is them putting their gamers first. That said, I didn’t even know they issued online passes (whatever that is or was).
