Crysis 3, Dead Space 2 and Dante's Inferno: EA with end of support

As of March, Electronic Arts had already dropped support for some high profile titles – notably Battlefield: Bad Company. This caused quite a stir, which is why at least Mirror’s Edge was spared for the time being. Now three more titles are added: Crysis 3, Dead Space 2 and Dante’s Inferno. Here, too, the online components will then no longer be available.

Let’s start with Crysis 3, which will be semi-retired on September 7th; that goes for the PC as well as the console versions. Ultimately, however, Crysis 3’s online multiplayer mode was never very successful – the title doesn’t currently have many players on Steam either. Dead Space 2 and Dante’s Inferno hits December 8, 2023, which is also the end date for the Battlefield games. After all, Dead Space 2 has more than double the number of players on Steam than Crysis 3, but the multiplayer mode doesn’t stick in the memory here either. They come from a time when you wanted to sell a game pass on consoles and often served more purpose. Visceral’s Dante’s Inferno is the latest of the string titles that have recently been added.

Server down: EA shuts down online functions for three Battlefield games

As always with these games, multiplayer will no longer be available; the game titles that do not need a match-making server will continue to be available – primarily the campaigns. Electronic Arts has a current list of games going into early retirement in alphabetical order on its website. However, the alphabetical order makes the list somewhat confusing.
