EA shutting down Lord of Ultima free-to-play browser game in May

February 12, 2014 | By Alex Wawro




Newsbrief: Electronic Arts announced today that its free-to-play browser game Lord of Ultima will be shut down on May 12.

No reason was given for the game's closure, though it's not a complete surprise in light of the fact that EA shut down the German-based developer of Lord of Ultima, EA Phenomic, more than six months ago.

In preparation for the game's closure, EA is no longer allowing Lord of Ultima players to register new accounts or purchase in-game currency. There will be no refunds on existing purchases, however -- EA is encouraging invested players to continue playing until the game shuts down and compete in a "race to be the final Lords" of Ultima.

Gamasutra has reached out to EA representatives for comment on why the game is being shut down, and will update the story with any meaningful new information.
