Complete List of all 50 EA Games Going Offline on June 30

50 EA Games

Many gamers around globe were dealt a giant blow at the news of GameSpy shutting down this summer. Some of our favorite multiplayer games from the last decade will be going dark on June 30. EA posted a nice little note on their Service Update page explaining that even though these games still have an audience, “it’s no longer feasible to continue the behind-the-scenes work involved with keeping these games up and running.”

I can’t tell you how many hours I’ve logged into Medal of Honor: Allied Assault or Star Wars: Battlefront II, but I can honestly say that it feels like an end to an era. Sure I can still play a single player campaign, but I have so many memories of close matches and insane kill streaks for both of these games. I still remember the first time I stormed the beach in Medal of Honor: Allied Assault and was thinking how crazy this shit must have been in real life. We got a dose of the horror in the film Saving Private Ryan, which immediately popped into my head when the gates on the boat dropped.

ONLINE SERVICE UPDATES

The decisions to retire older EA games are never easy.  The development teams and operational staff pour their hearts into these games almost as much as the customers playing them and it is hard to see one retired.  But as games get replaced with newer titles, the number of players still enjoying the older games dwindles to a level — typically fewer than 1% of all peak online players across all EA titles — where it’s no longer feasible to continue the behind-the-scenes work involved with keeping these games up and running.  We’re constantly working to keep our games and services available for as long as possible.

We hope you have gotten many hours of enjoyment out of the games and we appreciate that you’re choosing to play with EA.
If you have further questions about your account or the shut down of these services, please visithttp://help.ea.com.
