Electronic Arts is shutting down several of their Facebook games including The Sims Social, SimCity Social, and Pet Society. EA said that the reason for why they are ending the games is because “the number of players and amount of activity has fallen off.” The games will be shutting down officially on June 14, 2013.
“EA will continue to deliver popular titles for Facebook, most notably games from PopCap, including Bejeweled Blitz, Solitaire Blitz and the recently-announced Plants vs. Zombies Adventures,” said the company in a blog post. Fans of Sim City are upset by the shutdown and does not believe that Bejeweled Blitz can be considered a substitute.
Recently Electronic Arts was considered the “Worst Company in America” by Consumerist, a recognition that EA COO Peter Moore is not proud of.
