As previously announced back in April, the games Battlefield Heroes and Battlefield Play4Free were slatted by EA to be shutdown permantely on July 14. Unfortunately, that happens to be today's date, and the servers for both games have been closed and the titles have been added to EA's (long) list of shutdown services.
Both games were little over five years old and were the remaining two free-to-play titles in the Battlefield series. Up to it's shutdown last night, players of the Battlefield Play4Free community were attempting to convince EA to keep the game online through a petition on Change.org, which aquired just over 6,900 supporters. Despite the petition's organizer also sending a letter to EA proposing several different alternatives to shutting down the game, the petition was ultimately unsuccessful.
