EA Shutting Down Social Games
Say goodbye to your Social Facebook games
EA will be shutting down three of their Facebook games due to their restructuring. The three games that will be going down are Sims Social, Pet Society, and SimCity Social. The servers for these titles will be going offline on June 14th 2013.
Refunds will not be given on currency that was purchased for the free-to-play social games on Facebook despite the shut down.
However, EA will be giving players “a special offer to introduce you to a PopCap game,” according to this statement. EA will be going towards PopCap games. PopCap are very well known for block-buster casual indie titles such as Plants vs Zombies and Peggle.
EA bought PopCap games back in July 2012. Ever since John Riccitello resgiend back in March, EA has been going through some major changes including the closure of their Montreal studio which was responsible for free-to-play social games.
