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
  • Burnout Revenge
  • EA Create
  • EA Sports Active
  • EA Sports Active NFL Training Camp
  • FIFA 10
  • The Godfather II
  • Need for Speed ProStreet
  • The Saboteur (Midnight Club access)
  • Spare Parts

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.
