Während Spiele wie Battlefield Bad Company 2 sich immer mehr an Beliebtheit erfreuen, müssen ältere Titel wie Battlefield 2: Modern Combat inklusive der Demo Version sowie die Demo zu Battefield 2142 das Schlachtfeld räumen und Platz für neues machen. Fans, die bislang noch nicht das Vollpreisspiel besitzen, können Battlefield 2142 bei Amazon schon für 11,75 € erwerben.
The decisions to retire older EA games are never easy. The development teams and operational staff pour their hearts into these games almost as much as the customers playing them and it is hard to see one retired. But as games get replaced with newer titles, the number of players still enjoying the older games dwindles below a point — fewer than 1% of all peak online players across all EA titles — where it’s feasible to continue the behind-the-scenes work involved with keeping these games up and running. We would rather our hard-working engineering and IT staff focus on keeping a positive experience for the other 99% of customers playing our more popular games. We hope you have gotten many hours of enjoyment out of the games and we appreciate your ongoing patronage.
