EA completes online services for Red Alert 3, OnRush and more

EA will soon shut down online features for a number of older titles, including Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3, rushand mirror edge.

As highlighted by Eurogamer, 13 titles will lose online features in the coming months, according to the US publisher’s Online Service Shutdown page.

The first to lose online access will be Army of Two: The 40th Day, Army of Two of the Devil Carteland Origins of the Dragon Age (MP Screenshots Server) on October 20, 2022.

Red alert 3 for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, mercenary 2 for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 and Command and Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars for Xbox 360 will follow shortly thereafter on November 9th.

EA said the decision to retire certain features and modes was “never easy” but is becoming a foregone conclusion as games are replaced by newer titles and player numbers dwindle.

“The development teams and operational staff put their hearts into our games, their features and modes almost as much as the players do, and it’s hard to see one retire,” the company wrote.

“As games are replaced by newer titles, the number of players still enjoying games that have been live for some time shrinks to levels – typically less than 1 percent of all top online players across all EA titles – where it is no longer feasible to continue the behind-the-scenes work involved in keeping the online services for those games running.”
