Electronic Arts has announced that they are officially pulling the cord on some of their free-to-play games, ending their availability in three months’ time. One of the titles remaining onboard is the beloved Star Wars: The Old Republic, but other titles such as Battlefield Heroes, Need for Speed World and FIFA world will be removed.

In lieu of the negative news for some fans, Patrick Soderlund announced that due to the removal of the other titles and the continued popularity of Star Wars: The Old Republic, the game will be growing significantly with the pending updates later this year, focused on story-driven content.

“For instance, Star Wars: The Old Republic is a game that continues to have a very enthusiastic and growing player community,” he wrote. “We have plans to introduce more new story-driven game updates to our Star Wars: The Old Republic players this year.”

As for the not-so-lucky games, Soderlund further explained, “In more than five years since most of these titles launched, how we play games has changed dramatically.  These were pioneering experiences, and we’re humbled that, over the years, so many of you joined us to enjoy the games and the community. While we say farewell to these free-to-play titles in the next few months, we are always exploring new concepts and ways to bring great games to more players around the world.”
