EA Games Logo

Electronic Arts is ongoing the cancellation of a small number of its games.

The company yesterday confirmed that it is going to be shutting down 3 of its Facebook titles , namely The Sims Social , SimCity Social and Pet Society.


The games might go offline on June 14, 2013.

From the authorized announcement:
Today we are informing players of the difficult decision to retire some of our Facebook games: The Sims Social, SimCity Social and Pet Society. After millions of people initially logged in to play these games, the number of players and amount of activity has fallen off. For people who have seen other recent shutdowns of social games, perhaps this is not surprising. 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
.Electronic Arts is far from the just one single shutting down Facebook games to concentrate on other efforts: Zynga is in the similar ship.
