The servers will be shut down in server updates in August and October, and the games being shut down include the original Army of Two, Need for Speed Most Wanted for Xbox 360 and PC, the original Skate, Battlefield 2: Modern Combat, and some EA Sports titles.
"The decisions to retire older EA games are never easy," Electronic Arts stated. "We would rather our hard-working engineering and IT staff focus on keeping a positive experience for the other 99 percent of customers playing our more popular games."
All of the games being retired have remakes and sequels. The complete list of games to be shutdown can be found.
