EA To Drop Online Support for LOTR:Conquest

February 17, 2010 at 8:18 pm by xoanon  - 

From geek.com: EA has posted an online status update on its website informing gamers that another twelve titles are losing online functionality. On March 16, 2010 online service will shutdown for players of ‘Lord of the Rings: Conquest for PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360’.

EA has been keen to stress it doesn’t take these shutdowns lightly, and only carries them out on games that just aren’t popular anymore:

“The games scheduled for shutdown in March and April 2010 represent less than 0.3% of all peak online players across all EA titles. Despite some people’s perception, there is a lot of behind-the-scenes work involved with keeping these older games up and running. We would rather our hard-working engineering and IT staff focus on keeping a positive experience for the other 99.7% of customers playing our more popular games. These decisions to retire games is never easy.”
