The Burnout series was one legendary for its crashes, takedowns, and general mayhem, but didn’t transition to the current generation as we would have hoped. The last game we saw from the series was Burnout Paradise, which did see a remastered version last year. The series developer, Criterion Games, has moved on to other projects, mostly working as a support studio for other EA projects, and now, after 12 years, the servers for the original Burnout Paradise are shutting down.

They will go down for good on August 1st, EA announced on the official Facebook page of the game. You have a little over 100 days now to finish any of the online challenges in the original release. The game will still be available to play in offline mode, of course, but anything connected to online play will be inaccessible after August 1st. This goes for all versions of the original game on Xbox 360, PS3, and PC- though thankfully, the remastered release remains unaffected, and will continue to host live servers.

Burnout Paradise Remastered is available now for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
