EA Sports MMA was one of the titles to support EA’s “Project $10,” including an online pass into packaging for online access. Used buyers, or renters, would then have to pay $10.
Well, what if someone recently paid for access? They’re losing it in a month regardless.
MMA joins the usual rundown of closing servers for EA products, this the result of Microsoft bending to their will for dedicated servers. This becomes the first game to use the pass system to go offline, although it’s likely a matter of time until more are added to this list. Note that EA has taken down the ability to purchase the pass, although when that happened isn’t known.
MMA will go offline on April 13th (including Burnout Revenge), joining 10 other titles. On March 31st, a handful of iOS titles will see the axe with regards to their server access.
