EA Takes Nine More Games Offline

Achievement hunters, beware! Electronic Arts is pulling the plug on nine more games with online gameplay components, titles like The Godfather and The Simpsons Game, which will go offline forever starting in March.

Some of those titles are going offline in certain regions only. Asia loses Army of Two on the PS3 in April - and for certain platforms - Mercenaries 2: World in Flames online support goes bye-bye in March. And three more of the games on this list are original Xbox titles, all of which are going offline in April.

Online Service Updates [EA]


    I didn't even think Godfather was a online capable game

      Didn't LOTR Conquest only come out mid last year?

    So wait, since those PC games need an online activation, will they be unplayable? My copy of Mercenaries 2 PC will be unusable?

      You will still be able to play Mercenaries 2 on PC as long as you're playing single-player.

    ea's stupid, conquest only came out last year, and plenty of people play it

    dont buy EA games.

      Yeah I don't think I'll be buying any more EA games. I'm not looking forward to Burnout Paradise being shutdown.

        Paradise is being shutdown already!?

          It isn't. Stinky's comment was alarmist speculation.

    So, how are we meant to activate EA games since they are going offline? I am asking as I am getting mercs 2 for christmas and would HATE IT if there is no way to play since the games are going offlie. P.S. does this include the activation server or just the multiplayer servers?
