Electronic Arts shutting down online for older games

EA is performing a cull of online components for a number of older titles, including entries in the Battlefield, Need for Speed and Medal of Honor series. The most tragic shutdown is, of course, Army of Two. The dedicated co-op community for that game is going to be devastated. 

The publisher says that fewer than 1% of its "peak online players across all EA titles" are playing these older offerings, so most of you will be unaffected. The titles will be blinking out throughout August and October, so if you play any of them, enjoy them while you can. 

Full list below.
