Electronic Arts to Shut Down Multiplayer Servers for Four Games

Electronic Arts (EA) will be shutting down multiplayer servers for several games, including Crysis 3, Dead Space 2, Dante's Inferno, and Mirror's Edge Catalyst. This move is part of EA's regular process of phasing out older games to focus on newer titles.

According to EA, the decision to close the online services for these games is due to a decline in player numbers. Typically, less than 1% of all peak online players across EA titles continue to play these older games. This makes it financially unfeasible to maintain the online infrastructure for them.

However, it's important to note that the closure of online servers does not mean the end of these games altogether. Players will still be able to access the single-player modes of these games. In previous instances of game closures, single-player campaigns were still available for players to enjoy.

While EA has not announced the future availability of these games, it is likely that they will remain accessible for purchase with the single-player content intact. However, there is a possibility that these games may be removed from sale, as was the case with Battlefield Bad Company 2.

It's worth mentioning that Crysis 3 Remastered, released in 2022, did not include multiplayer functionality. This suggests that these four games, which heavily focus on single-player experiences, may continue to be available.

As of now, there is no further information regarding the availability of these games in EA's store. It is advisable for fans of these titles to enjoy the multiplayer experience while it is still possible.
