EA silently kills a bundle of nice mobile games

Earlier
this month, Electronic Arts removed over a dozen of its older mobile
titles from the iOS and Android app stores with essentially no notice.
The blow came on September 1, when the publisher whispered via its
support site that the following games would be disappearing that very
same day:
  • Bejeweled 2
  • Burnout Crash!
  • Dead Space
  • Don’t Fall Off
  • Flight Control
  • Flight Control Rocket
  • Fly With Me
  • Lemonade Tycoon
  • Mass Effect Infiltrator
  • MMA by EA Sports
  • Need for Speed Shift
  • Real Racing
  • Sims Medieval by EA
  • Skate It by EA
  • Spore Creatures
  • Spore Origins
  • SPY Mouse
The list includes a number of standout titles like Flight Control and Real Racing, a couple of early success stories in the realm of smartphone games that helped establish iOS as a gaming platform.
While
these games won’t be attracting any new audiences, they can still (for
the moment, at least) be downloaded by anyone who previously purchased
or downloaded them prior to their removal.
The move likely comes
as a result of the titles being designed for older systems. Rather than
dedicate resources to updating software that is no longer pulling in
money hand over fist, EA says it is “focusing [its] efforts on
developing new and exciting titles, as well as bringing new content and
updates to existing popular games.” You know, until it decides to
expunge those games too.
