EA announced today it is pulling the plug on four of its free-to-play PC games: Battlefield Heroes, Battlefield Play4Free, Need for Speed World and FIFA World. Though the popularity of some titles (such as Star Wars: The Old Republic) continue with success, others have lost the charm they offered since their launch some five years ago.
Patrick Söderlund, Executive VP at Electronic Arts, said the following via a 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. While we say farewell to these free-to-play titles in the next few months, we are always exploring new concepts and ways to bring great games to more players around the world.”
The four mentioned PC games will still be available for 90 more days.
