Electronic Arts has recently announced the suspension of online services for Mirror's Edge and a few other games in line with not continuing to support its old games.

According to the official announcement of this company, the online service of Mirror's Edge along with games such as NBA Jam On Fire Edition, Gatling Gears and Shank 2 will be stopped forever on January 19, 2023 (29 December 1401). In the meantime, Onrush servers will be shut down forever on November 30. Electronic Arts' statement continues:

Decisions to remove features or specific modes of Electronic Arts games or to discontinue online services related to the company's older games are never easy. The development teams put as much heart into the games and their modes as the players, and it's hard to stop supporting them. As games are replaced by newer titles, the number of players still enjoying games that have been out for a while drops to a level typically less than one percent of the peak number of concurrent online players across all of the company's games, which cannot be supported.

Of course, we are committed to constantly updating and improving the various features and modes in our games to make sure they stay as exciting as possible. However, this commitment to delivering engaging gameplay sometimes means we have to give up old features and modes.

The company also stated that some games are still playable offline, and things like players' virtual currency balance or in-game items may still be available even if the in-game store is disabled.

It should be said that other publishers are not strangers to these actions either. For example, Ubisoft faced negative reactions from some players earlier this year due to disabling the online services of some of its old games. It is interesting to know that this action of Ubisoft prevented players from accessing additional packages purchased for some games. Of course, this company extended the online services of the old versions of Assassin's Creed, Far Cry 3 and Splinter Cell: Blacklist for another month, and finally their online services ended at the beginning of this month.
