The end is nigh... at least for some of EA's free-to-play titles. Some "veteran games" and games that did not prove to be profitable are now subject for termination, that includes the shooter Battlefield Play4Free and the browser-based title Battlefield Heroes.
And some veteran players are hit hard by EA's decision to discontinue service for Battlefield Play4Free, which had been in the market for almost 5 years.
But as EA posted in the official forum: "This is not an easy choice, but we believe the time is right to retire this veteran game."
All servers will inevitably shut down on July 14th, 2015.
EA will also bring down Need for Speed World and FIFA World.
