EA shuts down online servers for some Online Pass games

/ 7 years ago

EA has announced that they will be shutting down the online multiplayer servers for a number of games, some of which required Paid Online Passes to play.

From April 13 the online components of Burnout Revenge, The Godfather II, FIFA 10, MMA, The Saboteur and Need for Speed ProStreet will no longer be accessible.

EA Sports Active, EA Create and recently released XBLA title Spare Parts will also lose online support.

Below is a statement from EA regarding the matter:

“As games get replaced with newer titles, the number of players still enjoying the older games dwindles to a level – fewer than 1% 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,” reads the official statement.

“We would rather our hard-working engineering and IT staff focus on keeping a positive experience for the other 99% of customers playing our more popular games.”
