11 EA Games Are Closing Their Xbox Servers In The Next Few Months 2

Back in early August, we brought the news that a bunch of EA games were set to close their online servers in the near future, and the company has since added to that list with quite a few additions, so let's take a look at the updates.

Of the new additions to the list, the highlights this time around are arguably the original Mirror's Edge and the cult hit Onrush. Any online features will no longer be available in these titles after their closure dates.

Without further ado, let's get to the full confirmed list of upcoming closures so far:

October 20th, 2022

(Dragon Age: Origins is also shutting its "MP Screenshots Server")

November 9th, 2022

November 30th, 2022

January 19th, 2023

While some of these games are primarily single-player affairs, they may contain online features such as leaderboards, which presumably will no longer be accessible after their respective closure dates.

EA has the following to say about the server closure process on its website:

"As games are replaced with newer titles, the number of players still enjoying the games that have been live for some time 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 the online services for these games up and running."

"In some instances, where the online services for a particular game may no longer be available or supported, the game may still be played and enjoyed offline. Depending on the type of game, and the particular services which may no longer be supported, players’ inventory of virtual currency and/or in-game items may continue to be used, whether or not the applicable in-game store is open or disabled, and whether or not the game is still available for sale to new users."

In addition to the games listed above, EA also recently shut down the servers for Dirt 4 and Dirt Rally, which occurred when the two games left Xbox Game Pass Ultimate. We'll probably have more news to share on EA server closures in the not-too-distant future, so as soon as we have something substantial to report, we'll let you know.
