EA shutters several online titles, touts SWTOR’s growth

It’s a dark day for several online EA titles that contains ray of light for Star Wars: The Old Republic.

The publisher announced today that it will be ceasing service on four of its games due to a lack of popularity: Battlefield Heroes, Battlefield Play4Free, Need for Speed World and FIFA World. Players will have until July 14th to say their farewells before these titles are sunsetted.

The upshot? EA cited SWTOR as an example of a successful part of its F2P portfolio. “Star Wars: The Old Republic is a game that continues to have a very enthusiastic and growing player community,” the company posted, “and we have plans to introduce more new story-driven game updates to our Star Wars: The Old Republic players this year.”
