EA has announced that it’s to cease online multiplayer support for Battlefield 2: Modern Combat, Tiger Woods PGA Tour 10, Need For Speed: Most Wanted and more in its next wave of server culling, due to commence August 11th.
“The decisions to retire older EA games are never easy,” said EA on its support page.
“The development teams and operational staff pour their hearts into these games almost as much as the customers playing them and it is hard to see one retired. But as games get replaced with newer titles, the number of players still enjoying the older games dwindles below a point-fewer than 1% of all peak online players across all EA titles-where it’s feasible to continue the behind-the-scenes work involved with keeping these games up and running.
“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. We hope you have gotten many hours of enjoyment out of the games and we appreciate your ongoing patronage.”
Online services for the following titles will be shutdown on August 11th:
*ARMY OF TWO? for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360
*ARMY OF TWO? Demo for Xbox 360
