EA Game Servers To Face Mass Cull EA To Shut Down 25 Game Servers – Madden 09, Nascar 09, NBA Live 09 & NFL Tour Servers Set for the Chop

EA may have attempted to address the financial issues that plagued them
last year by loosing over 1,500 employees in November alone but now, in
a bid to reduce operating costs still further, EA have confirmed that
they are to close down 25 game servers during February and April of this
year seeing game servers for the likes of Madden 09, Nascar 09, NBA Live
09 and NFL Tourย permanentlyย shut down.
As one would expect, EA are being pretty sensible as to exactly what
game servers to close down in an effort to reduce overheads whilst
affecting as few gamers as it possibly can thus a number of titles to
see their game servers cease operation are fairly aged titles. That
said, there s a few surprises here " the discontinuation of game server
support for the Madden 09 probably being the one that ll see the
greatest degree of consternation from what are know to be a pretty avid
fan base.
Hers the full list of EA s game servers that are set to be culled along
with the dates that the respective switches will be flipped:
