Newsbrief: After shutting down more than a dozen of its online-enabled games earlier this year, Electronic Arts has announced that it will turn off its free-to-play browser game Dragon Age Legends this June.

EA shuts down its aging online games on a fairly regular basis, but Dragon Age Legends is still relatively young compared to other games that have gotten the axe. The title first debuted in March 2011, right around the launch of BioWare's Dragon Age II.

EA did not provide an explanation for why it has chosen to shut the game down, but noted that it will eventually offer a free downloadable version for users who want to play the social RPG without any multiplayer features.

At GDC Online 2011, BioWare San Francisco's Ethan Levy offered some insight into Dragon Age Legends' large-scale promotional efforts, and noted that the game's launch failed to meet EA's initial expectations.
