Electronic Arts is closing down the servers for a number of games, including a few that required paid online passes to activate. A representative told Beefjack that dwindling activity on the games is the reason, and that "less than 1%" of EA customers will be affected.
The games will go dark on April 13 and are as follows:
BOOM BLOX Bash Party
EA Sports Active
EA Sports Active NFL Training Camp
The Godfather II
Need for Speed ProStreet
The Saboteur (Midnight Club access)
Also, on March 31, online services for Battlefield 3 Aftershock, Fantasi Safair and Ghost Harvest will be terminated. They are all iPhone games that you probably don't care about.
