EA has announced that free to play titles Battlefield Heroes, which released in 2009, and Battlefield Play4Free, which released in 2011, will be shut down on July 14, 2015 forever. Here's what they had to say:
"On the other hand, some of our other PC free-to-play games are not as popular as they once were. So we find ourselves announcing the tough decision today that we are stopping development and winding down support for four PC free-to-play titles: Battlefield Heroes™, Battlefield™ Play4Free, Need for Speed™ World and FIFA World. These games will be live for another 90 days, after which they will go offline."
The Battlefield Heroes website had this to say over the matter:
"The war is over! You have fought long and hard but the time for peace awaits us. The Nationals and Royals have finally been able to put the past behind and call a truce. With peace comes an end to a great story, and thus it is with a heavy heart that we must inform you, that on Tuesday July 14th 2015 we will be closing Battlefield Heroes for good and stopping the service in its entirety."
They also announced that no new accounts are available to be made for Heroes and Play4Free current players are no longer able to by Play4Free Funds. Those who have already purchased them will not be reimbursed. -- awyman13 Talk Work 05:03, April 16, 2015 (UTC)
