EA has announced four of its free-to-play PC games are “not as popular as they once were,” therefore it will be winding down support for the titles by July.
According to a post on the EA Blog, the services and support for the following titles will cease: Battlefield Heroes, Battlefield Play4Free, Need for Speed World and FIFA World.
“These games will be live for another 90 days, after which they will go offline,” reads the post. “In more than five years since most of these titles launched, how we play games has changed dramatically. These were pioneering experiences, and we’re humbled that, over the years, so many of you joined us to enjoy the games and the community.”
EA said in the post that since the free-to-play option for Star Wars: The Old Republic became available, it continues to have an “enthusiastic and growing player community.”
More story-driven content is in the works for the MMO.
