In the wake of a new service update from EA, they have announced that they will be discontinuing online services for several games, including The Sims 2, FIFA Soccer '11, Madden NFL '11, FIFA Manager '11, and more. So If you like to have one last online game with someone, then you better get in quickly as the server shutdowns will go into effect over the next two weeks.
EA states in the announcement that “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 is no longer 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.”
